Sunday 31st May
6:30pm - 9:00pm (AEST)

Derived from the greek word 'Bios' meaning LIFE & 'Morphe' meaning FORM - Biomorphic art portrays vegetal, organic forms found in nature - from plants to the human form.
In this workshop we will create one of my very own Persian inspired patterns using encircled and peripheral lines to create aesthetic harmony and illustrate evolutionary concepts.
If you'd like to find more flow and harmony ~ Then this class is for you
~ Steph recommends the abstract botanical class before this endevour.~
Satruday 30th May
11:00am - 1:30pm
Square Repeat Pattern
Pattern analysis ~ see pictured above
A little variation on the most common pattern in Traditional Islamic Art coined the Breathe of Compassionate.
A repeat square pattern using the 8 pointed star ~ it consists of overlayed squares at a 45 degree angle. Compassionate resembles infinity therefore; Islamic designs tend to be repetitive.
The double overlapping Islamic square pattern adds two fours together, bringing 8 to life ~ which is directly related to the perfect octave in music. The eight-pointed star is commonly referred to as the ‘Khatam al-Sulayman’ (Seal of the Solomon)
When this star is tessellated it is then known as the ‘Breath of the Compassionate’ - Keith Critchlow.
The Art of Drawing Weaves
analysis ~ see pictured above
Sunday 31st May
2:30pm - 5:00pm
Friday 5th June
6:30pm - 9pm AEST
9:30am- 12pm UK
Learn to weave a graceful 12 pointed star ~ those who have my Geometherapy Book will know that this symbol appears on the first page.
The innate power of 12 is linked to the harmony of the tides, and the female cycle of fertility fit into the lunar months.
Think of the zodiacs ~ a heavenly circle neatly divided into twelve segments ~ each allocated 30 degrees.
12 also correlates to the Buddhist concept of dependent organization, called nidanas ~ the wheel of life
Shadowing is crucial in creating the depth of a weave ~ so the class will culminate with a watercolour demonstration.

~ The lotus, one of the most prevalent symbols in Asian culture
According to Hinduism each human is the spirit of the sacred lotus representing Eternity, Purity, divinity, Life & Fertility
- The Bhagavad Gita teaches us to be like the lotus,
working without attachment - untouched like water on a lotus leaf - resembling a beautiful flower standing high above mud and water ~ with our heads held up high - pure and undefined in the sun - rooted in the world of experience.
Class material will be sent before class along with the full video for you to practice at home.
I will guide you step by step from construction to tracing to transfer ~ all classes culminate with an ink and pen demonstration.
