Many beautiful designs and patterns are based on underlying mathematical principles of shape and symmetry. Using a ruler and compass, shapes can be constructed on paper which can form the basis of geometric patterns.
In this event, mathematician Katie Steckles and illustrator Hana Ayoob will talk you through the process and give you time – and inspiration – to design your own artwork, incorporating design ideas from traditional mandala shapes and patterns.
You will need:
- A pencil
- Plain paper
- A ruler
- A pair of compasses (for drawing circles).
You may also want to have: markers for drawing over lines, coloured pencils/pens, coloured paper, camera/smartphone to share photos of your finished work with us (if you'd like!).
