SHORT COURSE: Moorish Patterns from Morocco and Al-Andalus

SHORT COURSE: Moorish Patterns from Morocco and Al-Andalus

Be guided step-by-step through the process of compass and straight-edge construction of a number of Moroccan and Andalusian geometric designs - ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated - and develop your patterns into beautiful glazed ceramic tiles.

The vocabulary of much Moroccan 'Marinid' Geometry is closely akin to the 'Nasrid' style as evidenced in Moorish Spain and the Geometry of the Alhambra.

We will note similarities though will not overlap designs covered in the Patterns of the Alhambra course.
