What you'll do

We'll briefly go over the origin of geometric and Islamic patterns while marvelling at pictures of beautiful works. Next we'll get right into it, we'll use a compass and ruler to design and draft our patterns. After that, we'll paint using beautiful watercolours on canvas boards. Finally we'll finish off our masterpieces with touches of gold, silver or copper if desired.
