Calligraphy workshop

Did you know that each letter in the Classical Arabic language has several meanings embedded in it? When these Arabic letters are combined together, the meanings of each of these letters coalesce to give meaning to a word. That’s why there are over 70 words describing what we term a ‘house’ and over 50 describing what we term the ‘sea’ in the Classical Arabic language.

No previous knowledge of Classical Arabic required to take this workshop.

Technical preparation:

–          Bring you own paper of any size

–          Sharpie marker or pencil
