Islamic Geometry Workshops
Guest Projects, Hackney, London
Friday 14th December
Patterns of Morocco & Andalusia
All are 11am to 5pm with
1 to 2pm lunch break.
Participants learn to draw a range of Islamic Geometric patterns in the morning and then transfer one or more patterns to watercolour paper to paint in the afternoon and carry on at home. All are welcome, no experience is needed and all resources & materials are provided. Limited spaces, so please book your place in advance using the BUY NOW button above. Any questions, feel free to contact me.
We draw layers of lines and circles step by step using a compass and straight edge to create a complex underlying grid from which a beautiful pattern will emerge. We outline, trace and transfer the pattern to watercolour paper, to be decorated using watercolour pencils & paints. PDF guides are emailed to every participant in advance of the workshop, so that you may view on a device through the workshop or print off too, these are then be used to continue working on patterns independently at home.
Each workshop will have a theme to allow us to gain greater insight in that particular era, location or family of patterns. Each time we'll journey back in time to a different part of the Islamic Lands to celebrate the intellect of the unknown artists and geometers who created such beauty:
