All equipment & materials included. 

Open to all abilities.

Using paper and bamboo we will make an array of models and 3-dimensional static and kinetic structures.

We will Fold complex geometric Islamic patterns with ease and then use these as a basis to build an artwork reminiscent of the famous domed muqarnas doomed ceilings.

We will build the Platonic Solids and learn how to draw the solids both free-hand and geometrically. We will examine the key family of natural proportions, including the Golden Section, that underlie Sacred Architecture from across the world. We will explore how surface patterns can be incorporated into 3-dimensional forms and go on to explore larger geodesic (dome) structures.

In this course we will explore 3-dimensional geometry and its connection to patterns from a range of world traditions including Christian, Islamic and Vedic.
