In Autumn 2020 Art of Islamic Pattern will be running a four-day workshop in Granada, Spain looking at patterns from the Nasrid Palaces of the Alhambra. The programme will include practical classes in geometry and biomorphic design plus guided tours and lectures with local specialists, it culminates with leather embossing workshop with a celebrated local craftswoman, Munira Mendonça. Most classes will take place in the Centro Cultural de la Mezquita de Granada, at the top of the Albaicin on the hill facing the Alhambra within the beautiful cobbled streets of the medieval Moorish district, a world heritage site.

The course can be taken in combination with the Cordoba/Seville Study Trip taking place the following week, which has completely different, but complementary content – participants combining both trips will receive a 10% discount off the combined total fee.
