What you'll do

We will begin by a brief history of Arabic language and writing, and of calligraphy as an art form. Then if you can't write Arabic at all, we will teach you the basics and then proceed to what this workshop is all about - making your letters beautiful. You will learn about proportions, different writing styles, and methods of ornamentation. Then you can try your hand at calligraphy, using specials pens and ink that we provide.

Salim

Welcome to Lessane Arabi Center, where one of our Arabic teachers - Hisham - is also a skilled calligrapher. Arabic language and calligraphy have been Hisham's passion for years, and in this workshop he'll be happy to share his experience with you. If you don't know the Arabic alphabet, he's a qualified Arabic teacher who will introduce you to the writing system before you learn to make it stunning. If you do know some Arabic, we can go directly to the magic - you will learn how to make writing not just beautiful, but a true art form!

What's included

Where you'll be

The activity will take place in the Lessane Arabi Center - our Arabic language school. Depending on the weather and your preference, we can be in a classroom or sit on the beautiful rooftop terrace!
