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.
If you cannot attend the class - you can still pay as you feel and i will dropbox you the full video and class material so you can practice at home.
Evening coursework includes three complete

All classes focus on the Lotus Flower or PADMA
~ 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.
