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 eight-fold and one large ten-fold pattern with ruler and compass.

What should I bring ?

A palette with wells, so you can continue working on your piece if needed at home. Some examples here: Circular or Daisy

Round Sable Brushes, Pro Arte Renaissance Sable Series RS Round Brushes are recommended click here
