May 22 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join visiting artist Laurelie Rae online for this workshop series, which will explore the history and patterns of Islamic Spain. The class will cover the flora, fauna and geometry of Al Hambra and Madinat al Zahra. Classes are beginner-friendly, although each class will build on previous sessions. Participants can opt to sign up to attend any of the single classes or all four sessions! The classes will be held in English.
Session One: Andalusian Geometry and Mosaics
This beginner geometry class will focus on the geometric zilij mosaic panels found in the museum’s collection. The workshop will contextualise the patterns and the beginnings of the Umayyad Andalucian Sultanate. Students will learn two different patterns and how to paint them with watercolours, using a traditional zilij colour palette.
