June Stay-in Session – Escher Inspired Tessellations

Join in with our Escher inspired session to discover how to combine art and maths to create a wonderful work of art.

Can you create a pattern on a piece of paper, made up of repeating shapes, without leaving any gaps, spaces or overlaps? That’s a tessellation!

The artist M.C. Escher is known as a master of tessellation, he took simple polygons (2D shapes with straight sides), changed them slightly and repeated to create beautiful drawings and prints.

What you'll need

Paper
Card (optional to make a template)
Scissors
Pencil
Tape
Colouring pens / pencils /paint
