Islamic illumination Painting Cass Art Islington (FULL DAY)

Islamic illumination Painting Cass Art Islington (FULL DAY)

from 48.00

This is a full day workshop to teach you the painting basics of Islamic illumination. You will start with drawing your pattern step by step following geometry and free hand drawings assisted with templates. Then you will continue with painting the pattern following the tradition of the art of Islamic illumination with gouache gold and other colours.

The patterns in these workshops will come from architecture, Qurans, manuscripts an even textile. The Islamic art history is rich and full of beautiful patterns and we will take that as guidelines and inspiration to draw and paint our own patterns.

Please note, every session gives you the chance to learn a new pattern.
