A Pattern Tour of Uzbekistan with Esra & Samira

​In this series of live online classes, Esra and I revisited Uzbekistan virtually, by drawing & painting some of the beautiful patterns we saw on our trip to Uzbekistan in 2019. As well as guiding you through the geometry & biomorphic drawings, the sessions were enriched with a few travel photos, videos and stories from a most excellent adventure in this beautiful country.

The TASHKENT Sessions - 4 hours of RECORDINGS & PDFs included.

In the first session in February, Samira teaches the construction of the beautiful 12/8 pattern from a Metro Station in Tashkent along with a second more conventional variation from the Old City of Tashkent. In the second session, Esra teaches the free-hand biomorphic drawings that fill the geometric shapes. 

The KHIVA Sessions -  4 hours of RECORDINGS & PDFs included

The patterns of Khiva are far more intricate in terms of the biomorphic elements. In the first session from April, Samira teaches the geometry & Esra teaches the biomorphic elements for the first pattern from Khiva, In the second Esra and Samira repeat this for a different eightfold pattern, both from the Summer Palace of the Kuhna Ark.
