All Registrants for the full online course will receive a FREE signed copy of the Islamic Geometry Journal and lifetime access to class recordings and supporting material, including 5 instructional eBooklets.
Previously taught live by Richard Henry from Jan – Feb 2021, this series focuses upon patterns from the Islamic Geometry Journal (Wooden Books 2019)
The Islamic Geometry Journal is a beautifully presented luxury journal/notebook created by award winning publisher Wooden Books. Bound within a leatherette cover, it comprises 160 pages of watercolour-quality paper, lined, gridded and blank, together with reproductions of 32 original drawings by Richard Henry gathered from his classes and study trips over the last 10 years.
In this 4 week course, we will re-create a selection of designs from the journal and discuss the historical context of each pattern. Design sources range from Andalucia, Morocco, Turkey, Cairo and Persia and more. Patterns taught will be new designs not previously taught on-line by Richard Henry.
This is a beginners–intermediate level course. We will start with some of the simpler designs and then move onto more complex patterns. Scroll through header images to see examples of patterns that feature in the Journal.
Each teaching session is 2.5 hours long. There are four teaching sessions and an additional ‘course review’ session , a 90 minute open forum during which participants share their completed work and reflect upon the course. Workshop videos and additional supporting material will be available to download to ALL registrants.
