About this event

We have successfully launched our Geometry Club and are looking foward to all future sessions.

Join at MIAH Gallery for monthly geometry class where we will cover the fundamental principles of geometry and complete a different geometric pattern that is often found in traditional Islamic architecture and decoration.

Our Geometry Club runs on the fourth Saturday of every month. Each session is designed to be self-contained and can be enjoyed as a graded learning project or as a one-off session. There is a total of 10 sessions. Please note that familiarity with a compass is essential and understanding the basics of geometric pattern construction is useful but not essential.

Who is this course for? All levels of ability are welcome. Suitable for adults and children aged 11+ years. All materials are provided.
