Paper as you imagined it. Ebru – a technique of decorating paper

During the workshops, every student will create their own patterns of unique marble paper, which can be used as decoration, book cover or ornamental paper. As a part of the workshops, children will also see the section of the exhibition devoted to the manuscript of Pan Tadeusz and The Romantic's Library.
