Saturday Art Studio: Passion for Tiles

16 October '21 at 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Online workshop organised by Leighton House with artist Ayesha Gamiet.
Inspired by the lush floral patterns of Iznik and Damascus ceramics, in this online workshop students will recreate a tile design, exploring traditional painting and shading techniques from the rich world of Islamic art.

Workshop Outline:

In the morning attendees will practice pencil and brushwork, trace and transfer our designs onto paper.

In the afternoon attendees will learn different painting techniques traditionally used in Islamic Art to add colour to their work.

There will be a 45min lunch break, and a 10min break in the morning and in the afternoon.
