Islamic Geometric patterns have adorned palaces, madrassas, and mosques and Illuminated Manuscripts from Spain across to China from the 8th century till now. In this session, we will recreate a few of these historical patterns using a compass and straight edge the same tools that would have been used by countless geometers & artisans for centuries across the Islamic Lands. We will draw & color eightfold patterns and see how they relate to a wider system of shapes and patterns all drawn from the same underlying grid of lines and circles.
