Workshop in miniature paintings with artist Shazia Farrukh.
Saturday 10th June, 11 AM – 2 PM in Botkyrka konsthall, Tumba.

Islamic Art is remarkable in its significant contribution to mathematical patterns. These patterns are generated from simple shapes such as squares and circles. The shapes are combined, duplicated, and arranged in intricate combinations, and suggest a remarkable amount of freedom in its repetition and complexity. The workshop includes an introduction to basic philosophy of Islamic Art, a brief about materials used, their development and hands-on practice to create Islamic geometric patterns.

The workshop is free of charge (max number 10 persons), bookings via: Children from 12 years. Adults are welcome! Please note that the workshop will be held in English.

The workshop is part of the exhibition Lesser-known Stories, Saima Usman’s final project exhibition for the CuratorLab course at Konstfack.
