If you enjoy my resources, donation of any amount welcome to help sustain my work!
As many of us continue to endure social isolation and a loss of our normal activities, I hope this intriguing world of Islamic Geometric Patterns keeps us busy, positive and creative regardless of our income.
I offer many free resources & links: A variety of tutorials on YouTube, with a series on Five & Tenfold Patterns and Twelvefold patterns, resources suitable for Kids & beginners, book reviews, equipment & materials recommendations and links to many free resources online from other talented geometers & artists.
I created two affordable & practical recorded online courses where you can view video demonstrations along with accessing step by step PDFs to enable you to draw, trace, tile, transfer and paint Islamic Geometric Patterns.
I also offer live video tuition, one to one or for small groups of up to 4 participants. We can schedule sessions and cover topics, techniques and patterns from the world of Islamic Geometric Patterns & Design bespoke to your needs.
As of August 2020, I started a creator page on Patreon. This is an exclusive members only platform where you become a patron to support me and my work for a monthly membership fee ranging from $4 to $50 with a range of benefits at each tier. In 2021, we will draw a different pattern each month in our monthly zooms with recordings available for anyone who can't join live. Your monthly fee is taken when you join and then the first of each month thereafter. There's no obligation, you can opt out whenever you wish.
All the best from,
London, England, UK

I finally made it on to Esra Al Hamal's Podcast, Art Illuminated Podcast, her second season of an art and craft dedicated show about contemporary arts and crafts inspired by traditional practice #ArtIlluminatedPod.
We had such a laugh chatting away,except near the end when I was so hungry and Esra asked me hard questions!
Having not written anything long form in 20 years, writing for a special edition of the Journal of the Assosciation of Teachers of Mathematics was an epic task, so I diligently dove in full concentration to write a way too long article!
