Islamic illumination Manchester (full day)

Islamic illumination Manchester (full day)


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

Taught patterns 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.
