Why not make use of the the multi-buy options from the drop down menu? 4 sessions or places at a discounted price of £19 per workshop, £76. You may book any workshop date as long as space is available and if you can't make it, just give me more than 7 days notice and I can transfer to another workshop (as long as space is available). You can book for just yourself or come with a friend or two and share your multibuy workshop places. There is no expiry date on using up your dates either.
All are welcome, no experience is needed and all resources & materials are provided for attendees aged 14+.
Each session you will learn to construct a different Islamic Geometric pattern. Starting with a plain piece of paper, step by step we will draw layers of lines and circles using a compass and straight edge. From this underlying grid a pattern will emerge. We will outline, trace and transfer the pattern to watercolour paper, to be decorated using watercolour pencils & paints.
Monthly workshops allow you to work on your patterns further at home at an entirely leisurely pace. Step by step guides are emailed to you to accompany all patterns taught at the workshop. Therefore you can reconstruct the pattern, tile it or give it a woven effect. The pattern could be painted again and again trying out different colour schemes and materials. If your're not sure which resources to use at home, you get a chance to use them in the workshop. I also have a list of recommendations you can check out.

Less than 7 days in advance of the workshop: I’m afraid I am unable to offer a refund nor transfer to an equivalent workshop on an alternative date.
