Event description

Description

Join us for this one day workshop by Eric Broug, in which anyone and everyone can learn to read and make Islamic geometric patterns. No prior knowledge needed, suitable for ages 11 and up.

Offered to you with Dubai Design District as venue partner.

Eric Broug presents this amazing design heritage in a practical and historical perspective. He teaches how to draw patterns with the same tools and techniques craftsmen across the Islamic world have used for centuries. If you can draw circles and lines, you can draw Islamic geometric patterns! Using photos of many masterpieces of Islamic art and architecture, Eric explains the essential design principles and rules that have governed this design heritage for centuries, and enables you to put these principles into practice.

Schedule:

1. Presentation: A Visual Introduction to Islamic Geometric Design (many examples)

2. Drawing Session: Fourfold Patterns

Lunch

3. Drawing Session: Sixfold Patterns

5. Presentation: Contemporary Islamic Geometric Design
