I am very excited to be a teacher for the School of Islamic Geometric Design!
I have been researching and constructing Islamic geometric designs since 2010. In that time, I acquired and thoroughly read and utilized most books on the topic. I have also spent countless hours scouring the internet for pertinent information, which has included networking with fellow craftsmen from all over the world.
In 2016, I spent six weeks living in Fes el Bali, Morocco, apprenticing with professional tile craftsmen.I was trained how to construct Zellige tiles by hand (which are complex geometric ceramic tiles). My time spent in Morocco was also a great opportunity to research, in person, some of the finest Islamic geometric compositions in the world.
With all of this experience, I have created many original works of fine art, and hope to help others do the same.
As a teacher I am offering, -Youth/School Workshops
"Adam has been an absolute pleasure to work with. His professionalism in the way he planned and conducted the Islamic Geometric Design workshop for the Centre was greatly appreciated. Participants felt engaged throughout, with Adam being able to connect to each one of them by bringing his full self into his facilitation role. It was wonderful to see participants leaving with smiles on their faces and a handful of patterns they had created."
