Drawing Islamic geometric patterns is a rewarding way to be creative. With just a ruler and a pencil you can make many different patterns. For people who don’t consider themselves to be creative, it is an ideal way to nevertheless make something that is new. There is no need to wait for inspiration or to worry about whether it will ‘look good’. With our workshops, everyone just gets on with ┬áit, regardless of age or ability. Participants can help each other because everyone works on the same pattern. When the drawing is done, it can be embellished and tessellated to make a group composition.hb workshop
