The Penn Museum will host a hands-on workshop June 23. Artist and musician Richard Aldorasi will instruct the class on Turkish marbling.
Attendees will use the technique to create wearable art. Each participant will go home with a silk scarf, customized by their own colorful design.
While working on the project, Aldorasi will provide a history lesson on the 15th-century Turkish art of "ebru" or marbling.
The class costs $45 per person and includes the lesson, scarf and one drink (wine, beer or soda).
