Welcome to our workshop exploring Eastern Geometric Drawing & Painting. Fine artist and friend of The Crafter's Box Zahra Ammar leads the way on how to construct two ancient patterns step-by-step: The Breath of the Compassionate and The Geometric Rosette. Once constructed, Zahra then shows how to tesselate, transfer and watercolor these intricate pieces. The result? A beautiful, vibrant and shimmering piece of fine art for the home.

In our conversation today, Zahra discusses her love for geometry, the rich cultural history surrounding this art, the significance of the two motifs she chose for this workshop, and much more.
