Patreon allows you to support creators like me with a monthly subscription in return for benefits.

If you’re interested in Drawing & Painting Islamic Geometric Patterns then join me on Patreon from USD $4 a month.

And yes you can join for just a month. There’s no contract or obligation to join forever and ever!

If you do want to make a longer commitment, you can join any tier annually with 10% off the usual monthly subscription.

SUMMARY of Tiers & Benefits in 2024

The $4 Pyrrole Orange Tier is by far the most popular – and fulfils my desire to make this world of pattern affordable and accessible! You will be able to access the Patreon posts for the month you’re a member: Join the two ZOOM tutorials live, watch the recordings and download the step-by-step PDF pattern guide!

The $10 Cerulean Blue Tier will have Pyrrole Orange Tier benefits PLUS access to the previous 6 months of posts and each month’s PDFs & Zoom Recordings ( see six images below).

​The $14 Rose Madder Tier will have Cerulean Blue Tier benefits PLUS on the 1-year anniversary will receive an annual original hand drawn/painted and signed A4 sized (approx. 21cm square or 21x 30cm rectangle) Ink & Watercolour Islamic Geometric Pattern on 300gsm watercolour paper.  

 

The $60 Phthalo Green Tier is a special one! It’s actually geared towards those who want to make a one-off payment to access the full archive of PDFs since January 2021 and Zoom recordings since August 2020. That’s 36 different patterns and a whole lot of chat!

For all tiers, but especially this last one, there’s no obligation to subscribe for more than a month!

The Full Patreon Archive

THE ARCHIVE

There is now a massive 36 pattern archive, built over 3 years! This is now available in its own right for US $60, under the “new” Phthalo Green Tier. the idea is:  Subscribe for a month, download all the resources for the 36 patterns, have a a look around, join in the current month's activities and if you like what you see stay for longer! I recommend you downgrade to one of the more affordable tiers though!

The below gallery of clickable photos showcases all 36 of the patterns from January 2020 to Dec 2023. The most recent 6 months are always accessible for patrons on the Cerulean Blue or Rose Madder, but it's the “new” Phthalo Green Tier patrons who can access them all via the links

below to the Patreon post with Zoom recording(s) & PDF guide(s) attached. You need to be logged into your Patreon account to be able to access the tutorial.s

BACKGROUND

OK now I can tell you what’s what now that little important detail is out of the way! I’m here on Patreon in 2024 thanks to an idea from a lovely geometry pal, who emailed me suggesting I try Patreon in Summer 2020… so very grateful to Robyn and those who jumped on board when I didn’t quite know what I was doing…

The Zoom chats were great, but I was itching to start drawing. So hence the draw-a-long zooms were born in 2021. This became the main benefit of my Patreon: a monthly practical 1.5- 2 hour live Zoom where we draw and chat and go off on tangents - “The draw-along zoom”

This is always scaffolded by a step-by-step PDF guide and mid 2022 I added another live zoom where I most likely paint. “The paint-along zoom” is actually whatever is appropriate for the month’s pattern So as I continue in 2024, I want to have an element of flexibility so the two zooms will usually be a Draw-a-long and Paint-a-long, sometimes for more complicated patterns it maybe a 2 part draw-a-long. I’m immensely proud of this package of benefits that so many have learnt from to create such beautiful patterns themselves!.

Each month I like to plan my in-person workshops & Patreon patterns altogether around one theme. I usually teach the same pattern on online via Patreon and at my in-person workshops.

This is something that applies to the special ones who also can come to my in-person workshops, as if you join my Patreon there is often an overlap! I know a fair few of you who do so mega THANK YOU!! But also I just want to be realistic and open.
