Islamic art can be found all over the Islamic world, with each country, tradition, and culture adding to this rich art form. Traditionally Islamic art has three aspects to it – geometry, calligraphy, and Islimi. (floral and foliate forms).
This workshop offers a practical introduction to Islamic patterns in particular geometry. Under the direction of artist and art educator Sumrina, participants will be introduced to the historic and symbolic context, before engaging directly with constructing a geometric pattern from Sultan Baybars’ magnificent seven-volume Qur’an.
