MIA Workshop: Epic Patterns of Central Asia with Laurelie Rae
August 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This online programme will focus on the patterns, colours and textures from Central Asia in the Museum of Islamic Art collection, exploring the history of the Timurid dynasty and retracing their steps through the patterns they left behind. Students will analyse and create the Rumi motif compositions found in a Timurid arch, learn about the symbolic and practical uses of muqarnas and some of their surface patterns, create their own plate composition using motifs, and learn how to create the geometry of Timurid carved tiles.
