In Spring 2017 Art of Islamic Pattern ran a five-day workshop in Isfahan, Iran. Classes will took place close to Naghsh-i Jahan Square and UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.
The study trip included visits to some of the most remarkable architectural masterpieces in the Islamic world: the Shaykh lutfallah mosque (1619), the Shah mosque (1629), the Jāmeh Mosque (from 771) and other important hidden gems.
The course offered the opportunity to experience making geometric and biomorphic designs using traditional methods, on-site.
The course included an illumination class with the celebrated artist Farkhondeh Ahmadzadeh. Participants will learn how to paint and use gold leaf to decorate patterns drawn on the course.
Note: As with all our study trips, all teaching material will be based upon local sources. The content is different to our London courses.
