The creation and application of dual-level or self-similar geometric patterns (where the same forms appear at two different scales in one design) is one of the creative and conceptual pinnacles of Islamic geometric design.

Students on this course will explore the qualities of dual-level designs by looking at historical examples and then will learn to construct one large eightfold and one large tenfold pattern with ruler and compass across two weekends.

What should I bring ?

All materials will be provided on this course.

Who is this course for?

Previous experience of geometry would be useful as this course will build on the basic principles of ruler & compass pattern construction.
