Inspired by our new exhibition Geometric Light by Zarah Hussain, these workshops will guide you in the ancient art of geometry to create a piece of beautiful geometric art to take away!

You don’t need any prior knowledge of geometry or drawing skills – you will be guided by a professional artist who will introduce you to pattern creation, using a compass and ruler.
Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th will be led by artist Sumrina who will teach you how to draw patterns to create a unique geometric design.
Thursday 27th will be led by artist Saba Rifat who will teach you how to create 3D geometric sculptures in paper.
We hope to see you there!
