Instructor: Nancy Hays Hills
Sponsor: San Fernando Valley Regional
In this class you will learn to draw the underlying structure of simple Celtic knots, so that you can go on to create your own unique knots, whether traditional in nature, or something more whimsical. We will first work on basic rectangles, and then progress to triangles, freeform shapes, and circles. The goal is not to complete a finished piece, but to provide the skills necessary for future creation of your own knotwork. Once you have learned the basic principles, it will be easy to translate those skills into more advanced work, such as making letterforms with your knots
