Create a virtual world full of myth and mystery within a timeless Celtic knot or labyrinth drawing. Explore the intricacies of Celtic symbolism and incorporate some legendary creatures or sacred script into your own unique masterwork.
The classic Celtic labyrinth has one path that winds around to a central point then back outward. Dating back 4000 years it has been used as a meditative tool designed to help it’s travellers release burdens on the way to the centre and then accept what they most need on the way out .
Students can draw inspiration from modern artists such as Escher as well as computer generated fractal images which also share intricate, continuous pattern work.
Catalyst students will weave their own path in ink, graphite or pastel incorporating many design elements along the way. Trace a journey through pattern, line and form following the ancient druids to a centre full of iconic imagery highlighted with some gilding.
