Follow-on Course:  ‘Moorish Patterns’ – Evenings
6pm – 8.30pm, Tuesday 30th January – Saturday 3rd February 2018

Dubai Design District

‘Moorish Patterns’.

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.

Note: This is a more advanced module. Only participants who have already completed one, or ideally both, of the previous Art of Islamic Pattern Introductory workshops may join this module. The content is completely different to, but will complement the previous follow-on course Creative Design.
