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.

This course requires a minimum number of enrolment to run.

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?

1 x Windsor & Newton Series 7 no. 000 paint brush, 1 x Windsor & Newton Series 7 no. 1 paint brush. Paint palette with wells.
