with Natasha Mann
This two-day course, led by Natasha Mann, will introduce students to the Art of Zouaq.
Zouaq is a painting technique original to Morocco which creates arresting and powerful designs.
Found painted onto ceilings, doors, furniture and wooden objects it is an integral part of the decoration of private homes and sacred spaces in Morocco.
Students will also be given an introduction to the history of Zouaq and its different styles.
Using the traditional techniques of egg tempera painting using hand ground natural pigments from earth and minerals, participants will choose their favourite Moroccan geometric pattern to create a stunning painting to take home. Participants will have the option of bringing their own wooden box or panel to paint on; otherwise, the Studio will provide all necessaries.
