Taught by Richard Henry, this Geometry Primer workshop is suitable for beginners, or those seeking to refresh their skills.
This is first in a new series of ON-LINE workshops each Wednesday, introducing key geometric principles and ‘starter’ patterns. Each class length will be limited to 90 minutes in length.
In this first class we will explore the creation diagram, the vesica, the 6 and 12-fold family of designs and re-create the beautiful 12-fold harmonic expansion diagram illustrated above.
A workshop video and additional supporting material, including a PDF handout detailing the steps undertaken to re-create the design, will be available to download to ALL registrants after the workshop, whether they are able to attend the ‘live’ session or not. The course content will complement, but differ from our other ON-LINE courses. (Scroll through gallery in banner above to see images of historical designs typical of the patterns that we will examine in this series and former students’ work ).
On-line Registration Fee: £8 – £12
You will receive payment confirmation and within 48 hours before the start of the workshop, a link with joining instructions for the zoom workshop will be sent my email.
