I teach courses and give lectures in Islamic geometric design throughout the year at various locations in the UK and abroad with the aim of inspiring students to discover the traditional skills of geometric construction as fundamental tools for design in the modern world.
The practical courses I deliver involve drawing patterns with the ancient tools of ruler and compass. I demonstrate the stages of construction and help students to draw the designs themselves, but most importantly I try to impart an analytical understanding of the structure so that the core principles are understood with a view to enabling the student to explore the infinite possiblities of this rich artform.
Upcoming workshops and courses are listed below.
No upcoming courses planned for the rest of 2019. Updates will be added here.
