Learn how to a draw Celtic knot the easy way! I’ll walk you and your students through every step of drawing three different types of Celtic knots.
What are Celtic knots…
A Celtic knot is a motif that is infinite. It has no beginning or end. Celtic knots were originally seen in sculpture, carving, and manuscripts of Ancient Celtic people.
Knots may have been such a common motif because the Celtic religion prohibited realistic depictions of living creatures. When Christians came to power in Ireland they adopted the knots to their own meanings and purposes.
The meaning and symbolism behind the knot designs is mostly speculation. The designs held different meaning for different groups of people.

What age group would you rate this activity for? I teach grade 3 and I am wondering if it would be too hard for them, or if it is possible using the step-by-step guide! Thanks in advance for your help.
Hi Joy, The first two knot drawings would be appropriate for your students. The third, most difficult knot will be a challenge for a lot of your students of that age- but some will be able to master that one too!
