Geometric patterns are a prevailing motif in and Middle Eastern pattern culture. They are found in Middle Eastern miniatures paintings, architecture, Metal, glass, woodcarving, and calligraphy work.

The aim of the proposed workshop is to bring together students of different backgrounds in order to discover the satisfaction that comes with the creation of designs through the use of two simple tools (a compass and a straightedge). By creating patterns themselves students will gain on understanding of geometry principles of the understanding grids and methods used by traditional Middle Eastern artists.
