About the event
This Islamic geometry workshop will explore a pattern from Islamic traditions.
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 pattern we will create in class is pictured.
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+
