Maktaba Mornings: Islamic Art with Laurelie

PAST | Saturday, November 12
Sunday, November 13

Obsessed with Islamic art and patterns? We are excited to host Istanbul-based teaching-artist Laurelie Rae for a two day in-person workshop at Maktaba on November 12 and 13, from 10am-12:30pm. In these workshops, you will be exploring the many patterns found throughout the Islamic world. Registration for both classes is just about $278 CAD, and you have the option to register for 1 workshop or both. All class materials are provided. Laurelie is offering a 10% discount for the workshop to friends of Maktaba at this link (Promo code:ArtLover10) 

Each class will feature a curated historical contextualization of the chosen objects and patterns. Biomorphic (vegetal) and geometric patterns will be explored in order to complete the patterns or compositions. This class can be enjoyed by beginners and novices. In each session, careful instruction and handouts are given to make sure each student understands and can work toward finishing the patterns taught in class.
