3) Artist Demo: Patternmaking
3:00–4:30 p.m., Asian Galleries, Level 3 Landing
Artist Eric Broug will demonstrate the purpose and process behind the complex geometric patterning that adorns Islamic art and architecture. Discover how even the most ornate designs can be broken down into simple repeating patterns of shapes.

Eric Broug, originally from the Netherlands, received his Masters degree in the history of Islamic art and architecture from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. He runs Broug Ateliers for Islamic Architecture, Arts and Crafts in Yorkshire, which creates contemporary Islamic art. He is the author of Islamic Geometric Patterns.
