Gothic Geometry
Cambridge Branch - Online Event

19 November 2020

Sometimes we all need a reminder to look up and admire the incredibly beautiful architectural heritage that we too often take for granted. This short introduction to the beautiful rose window geometries of the Gothic period will hopefully reopen your eyes to the marvellous skill of the medieval architects and craftspeople. This is a hands-on session in which we will be learning to construct some of the basic rose window motifs using compass and straight edge. No prior experience necessary!

Equipment required: you will need a few sheets of A4 paper, a pair of compasses, a pencil, and a ruler.
