Schools Session – Escher Inspired Tessellations

For primary schools, our Escher inspired session to create a piece of Tessellation artwork.

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

Card (optional to make a template)
