Monthly Wednesday

Drawing & Painting Islamic Geometry Workshops

The Art Space, Cass Art Islington


 11 to 5pm, £50

Classes resume in 2024 due to store refurbishment

In these full day sessions, you will learn to construct a different Islamic Geometric patterns. 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.

We usually  draw 2 or 3 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.  We take break aroun 1.30 to 2.30pm.


Each month 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. If a theme is repeated, it will be a new set of patterns each time. 


All are welcome, no experience is needed and all resources & materials are provided for attendees aged 14+. Step by step PDF guides are emailed to you to accompany all pattern(s) taught at the workshop. The patterns can be be drawn and painted repeatedly, trying out different colour schemes and materials.
