Islamic Geometry Workshop led by Aiysha Amin
Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 5:30 PM
ALIF Riad, 6 Derb Drissi, Batha
About Aiysha Amin:
Aiysha graduated from The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in 2013. She received training in many different forms of traditional disciplines, and the language that connects them all, such as sacred geometry, islimi or arabesque designs.
After graduating she set out to travel for a year to several countries as a personal spiritual pilgrimage. The journey opened up many vistas of understanding and brought to the surface questions pertaining to faith, spirituality, ritualistic practice and in general how we view and our relationship with the Sacred.
Aiysha’s recent collection deals with these themes and ideas; in an age in which the ‘sense’ of the Sacred is being lost, and only a few fragmented traces of origins of Sacred history and sites remain.
Alongside this deeply personal project Aiysha works for the Greensville Trust (Liverpool, England) where she has been curating an exhibition called The Prophetic Relics for the last two years.
This workshop is organized by the ALC-ALIF Cultural Heritage Club and is free of charge. There is a limit of 10 participants; please sign up on the white board at the ALC/ALIF or contact Hamza directly.
