The recent exhibition from the The Education Centre at the Homerton hospital has found a temporary home in our London Studio.
We would like to invite all of our former students and any potential students to come visit for this one-off opening. Come meet us in person and learn more about our courses and international study trips, while seeing the stunning work from the recent show!

Exhibition Overview

Over the last 10 years there has been resurgence of interest in Islamic art as a contemporary art practice. The Art of Islamic Pattern, an educational partnership formed by Richard Henry and Adam Williamson in 2008, has been at the heart of this revival. From their studio in Hackney Wick, and more recently in Bow, East London, they have taught several hundred students practical skills in this venerable art form. The courses have centred upon geometric design, Arabesque floral motifs, and traditional craft practice. The works presented in this show, comprising painting, ceramics, woodwork, works on silk, have all been produced by former students and colleagues, many of whom have gone on to be successful artists in their own right.
