Splendors of Islamic Spain Workshop (Session 2)

May 29 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm

Splendors of Islamic Spain Workshop 2

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 the 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 Two: Seville Zouaq and Geometry Painting

This class will build on the first geometry class. The workshop will analyse the patterns on the museum’s Seville zouaq panel. Students will learn how to transfer geometric panels to watercolour paper and to create the weaving geometric border. Students will also learn the biomorphic borders and internal patterns and how to apply them to the finished geometric pattern using watercolour and gouache.
