An Introduction to Islamic Geometric Design 
Discover how geometric patterns in Islamic art and architecture were made over the centuries. For over a thousand years, craftsmen across the Islamic world created countless patterns and compositions. How did they do it? They were not mathematicians but used only circles and lines to create their masterpieces. In this workshop, author and educator Eric Broug will show you how to make these patterns using these same design techniques.

Lecture + book signing: The Essential Principles of Islamic Geometric Design
Islamic geometric design is a visual language you can learn how to read. In this lecture, author and educator Eric Broug will show how these patterns and compositions are made and how you can learn to understand the rich visual vocabulary that craftsmen have used for over 1,000 years.  The lecture will be followed by a book-signing event. 

School Workshop: Islamic Geometric Design
In a 90 minute session dedicated for schools, author and educator Eric Broug will teach students how to draw one or two patterns with a just a ruler and pencil. The workshop will offer historical context and touch on subjects such as heritage, mathematics, geometry, and manual dexterity. Each student will make a pattern that will be tessellated to make a large, collaborative geometric composition.   

Teacher Training Course: Using Islamic Geometric Design in the Classroom
Islamic geometric design offers an ideal context for teachers to address topics such as heritage, history, creativity, mathematics, geometry, manual dexterity, and collaborating. In this full day workshop, author and educator, Eric Broug will share his experiences and insights to equip teachers with the skills to enable them to use this design heritage in the classroom. Participants will be drawing several patterns themselves during the day.

Architect Training Course: Best Practice in Islamic Geometric Design
How can architects use Islamic geometric design in a way that does justice to over 1,000 years of best practice? In this course, author and educator Eric Broug will show you how to practically apply the essential elements of historical best practice. Knowledge of these rules and conventions will give you the freedom to innovate while staying connected to this design heritage. Using many examples from Islamic architecture, we will look at what defines consistent excellence.  We will also look at examples of how this design heritage is used in contemporary architecture and what we can learn from that.
