Islamic Illumination Workshop- Patterns From Qurans - Cass Art Islington

Islamic Illumination Workshop- Patterns From Qurans - Cass Art Islington

from 65.00

The art of Islamic illumination was founded to decorate the Quran in a way that brings light around the word of God. 

In this workshop, you will learn to draw and traditionally paint some of elements of old illuminated Qurans. The chosen elements usually decorate the margins of the Quran page and are known as Heliah حلية in Arabic.

This workshop will help you: 

  • Understand the elements of natural/biomorphic Islamic patterns (referred to as Arabesque in some cases).

  • Draw the pattern step by step.

  • Learn about the traditional painting process and paint your own pattern with gouache gold, outline it with black ink and paint the background.

Duration: One Day.

There are two available dates for this workshop. You can either attend one of them or both of them. There is a 15% discount to enrol in both workshops. The pattern will be different in each one.
