Workshop Persian Patterns Past

Oct 3 to Dec 12, 2015 ,
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
- London

This is an opportunity for students to develop more advanced skills in constructing geometric and arabesque/islimi patterns and is suitable for those who have already completed the introductory morning course, or have an equivalent level of experience.

The focus of the course will be upon patterns from medieval Iran/Persia, where Islamic art reached an extraordinary peak of perfection. We will look in particular at the stunning 10-fold rosette patterns, the use of the Golden Section in constructing these patterns and explore links between more recently discovered ‘Penrose’ tilings and medieval Persian ‘girih’ (knot) patterns. Students will learn to integrate these complex geometric designs with the family of Persian biomorphic motifs and explore more advanced compositions.

The course culminates with a 3 week period of practical application using designs studied and developed during the course. Individual project work can be undertaken in painting, stone or plaster-carving, wood marquetry and ceramics.
