Thursday October 4th Paisley with Melissa Hill

The pretty organic shapes of the Paisley make them a popular motif. But the historical roots of this decorative style can be found in ancient Persian religious beliefs. Melissa Hill is a commercial pattern designer and lifetime student of textile and decorative traditions from around the world. Learn more about what makes a Paisley distinct, its spiritual past and political present, and how to enrich your own work with this special spiritual shape.

Bring your go-to art materials of choice for fast work in 2- or 3-D. Basic paper, pencils and pens will be available on the night.
