The Glory of Jasmine - Geometry Art Online Live Workshop
Welcome to the Geometry Art workshop from the Glory of Jasmine series.
The story of Jasmine:
Jasmine is like a poem from Persia. Delicate, atmospheric and sweetly fragrant. Jasmine is elegant with attractive dark green leaves and beautifully scented white star-shaped flowers. The name 'Jasmine' is derived from the Persian (Farsi) word Yasmin/ Yas - یاس - . In the language of flowers, Jasmine stands for purity, modesty and strength. No wonder why it's known as a heavenly flower.
It's a symbol of 'The Lady of Light' - Fatimah, the daughter of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Them). Her character is supremely pure and her status is elevated to the highest station of all women. Lady Fatimah's birth anniversary forms the origin of celebrations for Women & Mother's Day in Iran. According to the lunar calendar, this beautiful occasion will take place in February this year. We wish to extend the spirit of celebrating the Lady of Light to Mother's Day in the UK and many other parts of the world. And so The Glory of Jasmine series in Farsi and English has been curated for you!

'Geometry was a bridge connecting my childhood memories, love for my home country and my engineering background. I was so impressed by this art that I started self-educating myself in traditional middle eastern arts focusing on Geometric patterns; there was plenty of resources in my native language which I could learn from. After a while, some friends asked me to share the analysis and show them how to draw those beautiful patterns.' Dr Ghazaleh Khayat

Jasmine came to Europe from Persia (Iran) via trade routes, but both East and West have been fascinated by these blooms for centuries. The sweet and unmistakeable fragrance made the plant incredibly popular. Jasmine's buds sometimes have more scent than the actual flower, and some species only flower after sunset.
