Twelvefold symmetry provides the basis for some of the most versatile and flexible geometric patterns. Starting from the simplest 12 pointed star patterns and building up to more complex rosette patterns, students on this course will learn to draw 10-15 related but different patterns with ruler and compass.
Working through the designs in a systematic way will help students to develop an analytical understanding of the structure of these patterns and give an insight into how the designs may have originally been discovered by the designers and craftsmen of the past. We will also explore semi-regular (Archimedean) tilings which will open the door to countless further pattern variations.
