Perth Autumn Studio Tour

The Perth Autumn Studio Tour (PAST) - held annually on Thanksgiving weekend - is a well-established event at which craftspeople, makers and artists sell a diverse range of work. Our tour has earned a solid reputation as a very well-organized tour with high calibre work. Over the course of the weekend, approximately 3000 visitors travel between our studios which are concentrated in the beautiful rural area to the west of Perth, ON. At each studio, our visitors have an opportunity to meet host artists and their guests, to view interesting work spaces, and to purchase work from talented creators.

Intro to Islamic Geometry

I am teaching a one day workshop at The Cordwood Studio.

This full day workshop will serve as an introduction to Islamic geometric patterns. Participants will learn about the different families of patterns and draw a pattern for each, using the same methods craftsmen have been using across the Islamic world for centuries.

You will learn how to transfer the patterns onto watercolour paper and embellish them with a double weave. If time permits, you may choose a favourite pattern to colour or paint.

Participants will receive a handout package with instructions for pattern construction.
