I am very excited to announce that I will be teaching the following course with the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in February 2018:
This course focuses on the shamsa, or sunburst motif, found in The Padshahnama, a manuscript depicting part of the reign of the Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan. Learn about the underlying geometric and Islimi (floral/foliate) structures that form the basis of the Padshahnama shamsa. Gain fundamental knowledge of the painting, gilding, and brushwork techniques used by Mughal illuminators. You will recreate a section of the original illuminated painting and build up your own small portfolio of painting and drawing studies to take home.
The course fee includes a visit to Windsor Castle to see the original page of manuscript.
Course Dates and Timings: 19th-23rd Feb 2018 (Monday to Friday), 10.30am – 5.30pm
Venue: Prime Studios, 1 – 6 Ward Royal Parade, Alma Road, Windsor, SL4 3HR. Click here for a map.
