Learn how craftsmen in the Islamic world have, for centuries, been creating beautiful and complex geometric compositions. Author and educator Eric Broug will show you the techniques, and the design rules that have been used for many centuries. Using dozens of photos and illustrations from Islamic art and architecture, he will enable you to develop a profound understanding of how patterns were made.
No prior skill or experience is needed. Just bring your curiosity, your creative spirit, and some pencils and marker pens.
