Painting Techniques Inspired by Ottoman Textiles

Background Information

Work produced at last
workshop by Nausheen S.

This course is being offered again due its popularity. There is limited availability so please book to avoid disappointment.

The Traditional Crafts are derived from the intertwining of wisdom (hikmah) and craftsmanship (fann or sinaah). Traditional textiles and costumes enable one to wander through the history of the world, from the rise of civilizations to the fall of empires, with a blend of diverse cultures, legends and religions.

The traditional textiles resonate humility and beauty. The substance of art is beauty and this is a Divine quality. Join us to explore painting techniques inspired by Ottoman Textiles and the beauty therein.

Students will be taken on a timeless journey through the history, techniques, symbolism and application of these Traditional textiles. Traditional textiles are rich in pattern, colour and texture. This workshop will introduce students to the harmony of colours, an understanding of pattern created by Geometry and ‘Islimi’ – also known as the Arabesque and the textural quality of textiles. This will be achieved through traditional painting techniques.
