In this follow-on course we will be constructing Jaali screens (perforated stone and plaster window). We will draw stunning Mughal Patterns from Gujarat and Rajasthan. We will work with a traditional geometric design not previously taught in Abu Dhabi that will comprise a family of different polygonal modules that can be arranged in different configurations. Students will be taken through the whole process of constructing the design with compass and straight edge.

These patterns will be then carving in plaster using the pierced method.
