Mughal painting is a style of South Asian, particularly North Indian painting. They were miniature by design (many not more than a few square inches), brightly coloured, and highly detailed paintings, mostly used to illustrate manuscripts and art books. Despite their tiny sizes, they are incredibly precise, with some lines painted using a single hair.
These workshops will help you re-create a stained-glass window type of effect (using permanent pens on acetate) of a Mughal painting. You will be able to embellish the frame with symmetrical early Islamic tile designs to give your picture the finishing touches.
All materials will be provided free of charge.
Workshop led by Louise Grassby.
