Learning to Sketch Out Celtic Knots


Friday, July 2 at 9:00 AM CDT

All Skill Levels Welcome
Design • Drawing


In this class you will learn to draw the underlying structure of simple Celtic knot work, so that you can go on to create your own unique knots, whether traditional in nature, or something more whimsical. We will work on basic rectangles, triangles, circles, and freeform shapes. The goal is not to complete a finished piece, but to provide the skills necessary for future creation of your own knot work.
