The interweaving of fluid animal forms and woven knot-work is perhaps the most unique of the Celtic art forms.

Learn to draw and design traditional motifs and patterns featuring animals; Then compose and paint your own designs.

Whereas our other Celtic Pattern courses focus on construction and the geometrical workings of Celtic pattern, this course emphasises freehand composition using an underlying dot grid, and the final rendering and illumination of constructed patterns.

Who is this course for?

Suitable both for complete beginners in Celtic art and those who have completed the Celtic Geometry, Pattern and Imagination course.

What should I bring to class?

All materials will be provided in the class.

What days do I attend?

Saturdays, 1, 8, 15, and 29 June, and 6 July. 

There will be no class on 22 June.
