Geometry has been used to inspire art and design for centuries and across different cultures. The practice of geometry is also a tool for contemplation and meditation, with its inherent symbolism and rhythmic practice. It increases one's awareness of the archetypal shapes and rhythms found all around us, bringing a wonderful feeling of presence and deeper respect for our being, and its immensity of patterns, symmetry, and beauty.

In this Sunday afternoon introductory workshop, you will be:
- guided through the steps for constructing a basic geometric pattern using a compass and straight edge;
- use this as a basis for creating one or more intricate designs, looking historically at patterns used in art, architecture, or design;
- explore philosophy and symbolism underlying geometry, as well as its contemplative form;
- be introduced to a number of design elements including line, shape, tone and colour, to begin your own design using a variety of mixed media.

Join this workshop where we will work to a relaxed and meditative rhythm, finding freedom in flow, and flow in structure. This workshop is suitable for beginners aged 15+ and for those wishing to explore geometry as a design and mindfulness tool.
