The course will be hosted in Riad Karmela, a beautiful traditional riad in the heart of the medina and offers the opportunity to experience making geometric and biomorphic designs using traditional methods in the context of a UNESCO world heritage site. In addition to drawing classes and site visits, there will also be a traditional pottery class with local craftsmen in Dar Cherifa, one of the oldest houses in the ancient medina (picture below) .

Note: As with all our study trips, all teaching material will be based upon local sources: on this trip the palaces and madrassas of Marrakech. The content is different to our London courses and all other study trips.

To view Art of Islamic Pattern’s previous study trips to Morocco take a look at the picture galleries.
