This workshop consists in creating an individual artwork on paper using the vegetal motifs and patterns found in Turkish traditional art and design. Participants will be looking at geometry, composition and prepare a colour chart according to the colours used in Iznik design.
Iznik, a town in northwestern Turkey, was the main center for the production of ceramic tiles and tableware in the Ottoman empire. These ceramics were highly valued luxury objects and have come to represent Ottoman visual culture at its height.
