Art of Islamic Pattern are happy to confirm a five-day workshop in Marrakech,  Morocco. The study trip will include visits to some of the most remarkable architectural masterpieces in the Islamic world: including the Ben Youssef Madrasa (14th century) the Bahia Palace (19th C), the Saadian Tombs (16th C) and other unique monuments.

The course will be hosted in Riad Karmela, a beautiful traditional riad in the heart of the medina and

offers the opportunity to experience making geometric and biomorphic designs using traditional methods in the context of a UNESCO world heritage site. There will be a traditional Zouak painting with a local master. Participants will make their own set of donkey hair brushes and complete a floral and woven geometric panel.

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