How to Draw Celtic Knots
With Brian Dench
Why is it that the world’s most historic treasured Gospel books - Kells, Lindisfarne – are overflowing with an abundant variety of intricate woven knots... that the original mosaic pavement of the first Christian church at the site of the nativity in Bethlehem was covered in “ribbon interlace”... even in the sanctuary surrounding the entrance to the birthplace... that knots are found on vestments, altars, chalices, gravestones ... personal identity seals from 7000 BC and corporate logos of the 21st century?
What makes this pattern so remarkable as to be chosen for so many millennia, across so many cultures, on such highly valued and significant items personal and communal, sacred and secular - yet so little known about in our time? Art historians call it “geometric ornament”– surely it is more than that!
Find out first hand. The start-point is simple: you can draw a dot, a line and a square: the rest is history. You will learn a 12-step sequence of how to organize the dots and lines to produce a knot - we just tease out how to organize the order, and the first one is down in about 20 minutes.
Because you will begin to understand the pattern-making principles involved, you will discover how to analyze and reconstruct the remarkable designs of antiquity and Celtic monastic culture. Gradually you will train your eye - and mind - in ways to break the rules, and produce a fantastic curious variety of patterns out of the 12 basic steps. There are endless ways to turn your beautiful simple knot into something more fascinating and complex. Not only will you learn secrets to ways these mezmerizing weaving patterns of history were constructed, you will be able to create them yourself - for whatever purpose, whatever size or shape - to apply in arts, crafts or even casual doodling... or tattoos!
Appreciate. Marvel. Create. Meditate. When it comes to knots, deep meaning is present, built with a simplicity that holds the complexity together- all interconnected: who knew?
Learn to create the knots. Discovering their secrets can be an enriching experience, while also amusing and fun. No artistic gift or training is needed, though experienced artists will find riches to please. Bring blank paper, fine tip black marker pens, colour markers or pencils, and tracing paper.
Get ready for a few sessions of awe-robics!
Course fee: $310
