22nd May 11:00am to 2:00pm

Location: Cass Art


In these 3-hour Sunday workshops Samira will guide you through the process of drawing layers of lines and circles step by step using a compass and straight edge to create a complex underlying grid from which a beautiful pattern will emerge. You will outline, trace and transfer the pattern to watercolour paper, brought to life with watercolour pencils & paints to complete a colourful piece in watercolours in the session or complete at home aided by the step-by-step PDF accompanying every pattern. Each month participants journey back in time to a different part of the Islamic Lands to gain greater insight in a particular era, location or family of patterns.

This workshop is hosted by Samira Mian, artist and educator with a passion for geometry & art, breathing new life in to medieval Islamic Geometric Patterns using ancient tools in the 21st Century.
