Event description

Description

The course starts with an overview of the history and origins of the art and its roots in traditional Islamic manuscript illumination.

Students will have the opportunity to learn how to design and paint an illuminated shamsa composition, meaning “sun burst”. This is a classic Islamic manuscript illumination style incorporating gilded plant and floral designs.By the end of the workshop, each student should have a finished piece of artwork. Due to the difficulty in applying real gold for beginners,on this introductory course gold gouache paint will be used in its place.

All levels of ability and experience welcome. It is suitable for age groups 16+.

Tea and cake will be supplied during the workshop.

The course fee includes course materials.
