Drawing geometric constructions & patterns by hand is both a satisfying & absorbing process as much as it is a challenging and frustrating one. Somewhere in amongst these qualities, we feel such joy & wonder. We surprise ourselves with the beauty and complexity we create on a blank page with just a compass, straight edge and mark maker. It’s a process that needs our full attention and so empties our headspace of any of the stresses that we carry around otherwise. A process that connects us to humanity throughout time, from the Sumerians, Babylonians and Greeks to the Islamic Golden era to the Geometry and proportions of the Renaissance.

 

Drop in to any monthly session as a one off or make it a regular feature of each month. Monthly sessions can be a wonderful regular geometry escape and for those who have more time to spare: draw, redraw, colour and embellish constructions & patterns at home at an entirely leisurely pace.
