  • 1. What is a pattern? Teachnet 2005 Nicola Gardiner © 2005
  • 2. What is a pattern?
    • A pattern relies upon three characteristics:
      • A single motif
      • Repetition of the motif
      • A system of organisation
    Nicola Gardiner © 2005
  • 3. Four main pattern techniques
    • There are four basic ways that you can repeat a motif to create a pattern
      • Repeats, half drop repeats, reflection and rotation
    • Mathematicians call these repetitions “rigid motions” because the movements do not lead to any change of size or shape of the original motif.

  • 4. Repeats
    • This i s rigid motion where the motif is simply repeated over and over along horizontal and vertical lines
    Nicola Gardiner © 2005
  • 5. Half drop repeats
    • This is a rigid motion where every other line of motifs is staggered.

  • 6. Reflection
    • Reflection is rigid motion where the original motif is reflected across a line or axis.
    • This creates a symmetrical pattern

  • 7. Rotation
    • Rotation is rigid motion where the original design is rotated around a single point
    Nicola Gardiner © 2005
  • 8. Rotation through different angles Nicola Gardiner © 2005 120 degree rotation 180 degree rotation 60 degree rotation 90 degree rotation
  • 9. Reflections and rotations Nicola Gardiner © 2005
  • 10. Other combinations Nicola Gardiner © 2005
  • 11. How many patterns can you make starting with a simple motif? Nicola Gardiner © 2005
