Tazhib Gereh Works Online course

Islamic school of art and UNESCO’s Islamic art club are presenting a joint online course on Tazhib Gereh works


Nearly in all Tazhib works we can see some beautiful frames which are usually painted with gold. These frames are in straight or curved lines. Although these patterns are only used as a frame for the Tazhib work but sometimes they are so delicate that they turn out to be part of the work which without them that piece of art would seem incomplete.

Course outline:

In this course you will learn the methods for creating different types of Gereh that is used in decorating the frame works in Tazhib. You will learn 10 different patterns and by using the basics that is taught in this course you will be able to start creating your own patterns and designs.

What you will learn:

1. Basic methods of creating Gereh in Tazhib.
2. Getting familiarized with some of the finest Gerehs in Persian Tazhibs.
3. Learn how to draw at least 10 different gereh

Tools you would need for this course:

1. Ordinary paper
2. Black pen(ink pen might work better)
3. Thin paint brush(triple 0 would be good choice)
4. Golden color(either the real gold or a golden gouache paint color)

Course plan and timing:

This course will start after at least 5 complete registrations. There will be 2-3 sessions for this course(depending on different factors such as the number of the participants, if we have more than 6 person in the class we will need more time on correction so we will need a complete session to cover that).
Each session would be about 2 hours long (upon request the timing of each class could be decreased and in return the number of sessions would increase) so the course is a 15-hour teaching course but you will be in touch with the instructor throughout the course by our WhatsApp number.
Due to time differences, we will need to adjust a time that is suitable for everyone in the course our first option is 5 pm Tehran time (+3:30 GMT) but this time might change upon participants request (we do understand your conditions in different parts of the world so we will try our best to adjust everything as smoothly as possible).

Course fees: 50€

Please be informed that we request the payment at least before the beginning of the 2nd class.
