Description

Geometry and Pattern - The Art of the Ever-True

Adam Tetlow

Celtic patterns. Islamic designs. The symbolic structure of sacred buildings. Man and measure. Time and tide. What regulates them, and why are circles and squares so important? Join Adam Tetlow as he takes us on a fun, inspirational journey through the history of pattern, and revealing the secrets hidden in plain sight in the circles, angles, and shapes that surround us and en-form us. Come and engage in some playful drawing and inform the conversation.

This event will be followed by a one-day practical workshop on Saturday 26 May 2018 which will allow the ideas we talk about to be explored in greater depth, bringing together head, hand, and heart.

Coffee, Culture, Cake
Curated Conversations with Living Tradition Bearers

People have long gathered in coffee houses to engage in dialogue and debate. It's a practice that's vital to a dynamic, well-functioning society and one of the reasons why coffee houses were called 'penny universities' back in the 17th and 18th Century.

'Coffee, Culture, Cake' events are part of this living tradition. Hosted at Saucer & Cup, an artisan coffee house in Wimbledon Park, the curated conversations bring together a unique group of living tradition bearers - architects, storytellers, educators, philosophers, musicians - to share their perspectives and join in conversation with you, to facilitate the kind of discussion that helps society flourish.

'Coffee, Culture, Cake' subverts the conventional lecture model. Rather than 'long time for talk - little time for questions', the format of these sessions is 'a little intro, lots of time for questions, and a meaningful summing up'.

Join us at for great coffee, great cake and—with your help—great conversations.
