Geometry of Twelve
|Dates:||1 February 2018 - 22 March 2018|
|Time:||18:30 - 21:00|
|Location:||The Prince's School of Traditional Arts|
The twelvefold system of symmetry produces some of the most versatile and flexible geometric patterns. This course explores a range of Islamic star polygon patterns featuring interconnecting 12 pointed stars and rosettes.
Students will learn to construct and develop an analytical understanding of a series of patterns built on square and hexagonal grids, as well as developing an insight into how these patterns may have originated through systematic exploration of the twelvefold grid. There will also be an opportunity to develop new configurations using a range of Archimedean tilings.
What should I bring?
All materials will be provided on this course.
You may find it useful to bring a notebook to take notes.
Who is this course for?
We recommend that you have previously taken geometry courses at the School.
What days do I attend?
This course will be held on 8 consecutive Thursday evenings.
