A fun creative workshop inspired by the multi-coloured threads and intricate patterning of the Bedouin embroidery on display in The Dock's current exhibition.
Working online with artist, Lisa Cannon, you can create your own Islamic pattern using an isometric grid, exploring the colours and patterns inspired by work of the three artists in the exhibition. Choose from the brightly coloured rugs by Bassam Al-Sabah, the flare of colour in the still life images by Atoosa Pour Hosseini or the desert landscape created by Jackie McKenna, in her large-scale sculptural installation of life in a Bedouin village.
You will need the following materials and your imagination!
