You’ll find the process of drawing the patterns by hand absorbing and somewhat challenging, but ultimately satisfying. The beauty and complexity of the pattern we create on a blank page with just a compass, straight edge and mark maker is amazing.
With Samira guiding you, first you’ll learn how to draw Islamic geometric patterns using a simple step-by step process. Then you’ll learn how to add colour and embellish your line drawings, just like the craftsmen over the centuries. The possibilities are endless. By the end of the workshop you will have created a pattern that has connected us to humanity throughout time. You’ll draw a different pattern every time you join a workshop and once the class is over you can draw, colour and embellish constructions and patterns at home.
These sessions are open to beginners; you don’t need previous knowledge or experience. The workshops are suitable for any ability aged 14+ and take place every month. You can book a place on any monthly workshop, but why not make Drawing Geometry with Samira a regular feature in your calendar?
You get a discount if you book a place on four workshops. The dates of the 2023 workshops are:
- 28 October
- 25 November
