Follow-on course for experienced students
This an opportunity for students, who already have some experience of constructing geometric and arabesque patterns, to gain a deeper understanding of the principles underlying a range of designs found within the Maghreb and Andalucia.
We will look at the more complex multi-petal rosettes so typical of this region, and study their underlying geometric principles with a view to creating both classical and original designs. We will learn to integrate these geometric designs with the family of Moorish biomorphic motifs and explore more advanced compositions.
(Week 2 can be taken as a stand-alone module for those who have already completed an introductory course, or have an equivalent level of experience)
Students are advised to purchase a good quality compass (approx £20) in advance of the course. All other specialist materials are provided and included in the course fee.
Group Size: We normally limit group sizes to 14 students. This ensures maximum attention for each individual student.
