Islamic Geometry for Beginners
A practical introduction to Islamic geometry.
Using a ruler and compass, construct a pattern and create a painting to take home with you
About this Event

This Islamic geometry workshop will explore a pattern from Islamic traditions - the eight-pointed star and cross pattern (pictured).

During the session we will be using a compass and ruler to create a geometric pattern template and we will go through the process of transferring and repeating the template on to watercolour paper.

The last part of the session will be an opportunity to explore painting techniques so you can create your own piece of work to take home.

Equipment and materials will be provided during the class.

No prior experience is required.

Suitable for ages 16+
