Schoolchildren in Yorkshire taking part in an Islamic geometric design workshopMaking Islamic geometric patterns is a fun and educational way to address topics like mathematics, creativity, heritage and (art)history in the classroom.

Our step-by-step approach to creating patterns means that everyone can keep up. Because we use templates as the first step, all the classroom output can be tessellated to make a bigger composition.

 

For Ages 10+

Our workshops teach kids about:

  • Art
  • Maths
  • History
  • Creativity
  • Accuracy
  • Focus
  • Manual Dexterity
  • Working Together

Book us for a day of workshops. A typical day at a school is:

1. Brief presentation at assembly and/or for parents

2. Two or three 90 minute workshops.
