Persian patterns.
For me there is something so beautiful and mesmerising about these patterns - I love them ❤️💖♥️ and I thoroughly enjoyed spending my weekend exploring them and drawing them. Thank you for your excellent teaching skills, punctuated by some soulfully poetry and an immense amount of fascinating information and insights. I love being in your studio and being able to investigate any of the books that wink at me, to sit and soak up all your drawings, art works & creations is my idea of bliss!
Also thank you for being a shining light of sanity in an increasingly mad world!
And finally, thank you for the delicious, tasty homemade cakes, full of love & the tea.
I’m so happy & full of joy after my weekend.

It’s been a mind blowing & momentous 3 days of discovery, initiation & finding my way back into a world so expansive yet contained; filled with love, grace, spiritual connection & beauty. I loved the dark & I’ve loved the light. I’ve loved the chaos & I’ve love the calm. I cannot believe how much I’ve discovered, not only about myself but about the universe all contained within these works ... each one a portal of information within which one can choose to enter or observe while constructing. Extraordinary, inspiring & weird in that magical & mystical way. I truly cannot wait until I return.
So many thanks you’s!!!

I have thoroughly enjoyed the weekend learning and experiencing Persian geometry with Daniel. Daniel's passion is evident and brought the patterns to life, skillfully guiding us even through what at first seemed like the most difficult of patterns and made it very achievable. The quotes and stories that were told about Sacred Geometry brought forth a very rich experience. I now have the spark to continue my journey, thank you Daniel for sharing your obvious passion and Vija for your beautiful support.

Such a lovely course this weekend - thank you so much for all your help Daniel, especially when I was struggling at the end. I am very much looking forward to trying to figure it out myself when I get time.
And I will look forward to coming back - I'm just not sure which course, they all look up my street!

Well-structured course, started from the basics and built up. I understand now the concepts behind the constructions, how to analyse a pattern and imagine the geometries inside. Thanks Adam and Daniel for this wonderful weekend course. Very happy with the portfolio of patterns that I'm going home with. Hope to join another course with you again soon.
