# Draw Islamic Geometric Star Patterns

#### Description

Learn how to draw seven geometric star patterns from around the Islamic world, using only a pencil, straight edge, and a pair of compasses. Patterns featured are from Baghdad, Fes, Cairo, Konya, Delhi and Damascus. Suitable for ages 9 and up. No calculations are necessary.
The least complicated way of learning Islamic geometric design is to understand and use the same techniques that craftsmen in the Islamic world have used for centuries. These craftsmen were not mathematicians; they knew how to make things with their hands but they did not use measurements or calculate angles to make their compositions. Their tools were a pair of compasses, a ruler and a pencil. By drawing lines, circles and arcs they were able to make all their patterns and compositions. This is also how you will be able to draw these patterns.This book will teach you how to draw seven different star patterns. All the patterns in this book can be made without calculations and measurements. They can be made by hand or on a computer. All you need to be able to do is draw circles and lines. The tools you need if you are drawing by hand are a pair of compasses, a ruler and pencils. Each pattern is constructed in a step-by-step process.

#### Customer Reviews

##### A great introduction to drawing Islamic patterns

For any one wanting to learn how to draw Islamic geometric patterns, the step-by-step instructions in this book are a great place to start. The links to the templates no longer work, but this wasn't a problem. For each design, you will learn how to create a geometric grid, then how to use the grid to construct the pattern. Even with the broken links, this book is well worth the price.
