Islamic Geometry: Embroidery 

My son was able to have a geometry lesson this past weekend with Hamza from Craft Draft.  He learned to embroider the Seal of Solomon design onto cardstock.  He used green wool yarn and a large needle.  Hamza patiently helped my son make each stitch.  I highly recommend workshops with Hamza if you happen to be in Fez Morocco.  He has an atelier in the old medina.  

We look forward to our next workshop with Craft Draft and we hope to see Hamza again soon.

Please share your ideas for teaching children Islamic geometry and traditional arts.
