Art and Design: Islamic Geometric Patterns

Saturday, May 16, 2015 - 5:00pm

Join us at this unique illustrated presentation and hands-on workshop on the art and design of Islamic geometric patterns with Carol Bier, Visiting Scholar with the Center for Islamic Studies at the Graduate Theological Union and former Curator at The Textile Museum in Washington, DC.

After a brief illustrated introduction to Islamic ornament in ceramic tile, carved woodwork, and illuminated manuscripts, we will explore the basic principles that underly geometric patterns in Islamic art through hands-on activities. Using paper-folding and coloring exercises you will learn to visualize circles and centers and the intersecting axes of grids that allow for the repetition of designs to create a pattern. Come to understand the organization of historical designs and find your own forms of expression through the use of color and symmetry.
