Draw, tile and colour Islamic Geometric Patterns: Using a pencil, compass and straightedge, lines and circles are drawn to create an underlying grid. From this, patterns can be outlined, repeated and brought to life with colour. These patterns have existed for centuries and can be found in architecture across the Islamic Lands from the tiled fountains in Morocco, the wooden Mamluk Minbars in Cairo, the Nasrid Palace in the Alhambra, the Blue Mosque in Turkey, the Paradise Gardens in Isfahan, Iran and the Mausoleums of Mughal India to name just a few!
This workshop is aimed at 7-12 year olds with their families, but older students and adults are welcome. There must be at least one paying adult attending with each booking.
