Two-day Intensive Calligraphy Workshop
Persian Nastaʿlīq Script
Registration is now closed. Please check the social media links below for the next workshops.
Nastaʿlīq script is traditionally the most predominant style in Persian calligraphy. It was developed in Iran in the 14th and 15th centuries. The script is well known for its fluid style. It has short verticals with no serifs and long horizontal strokes. Nastaʿlīq remains very widely used in Iran, Pakistan, India, Afghanistan and some other countries for written poetry and as a form of art.
My hands-on workshops are a great chance to get to know the basics of hand-lettering but open as well as for those with previous experience who want to improve their handwriting skills.
Hands-on sessions will be combined with on-site demonstrations, live feedback, short informal lectures and Q&A
