About the Event
Come and explore the beauty of Arabic writing and have a go at writing your own name with ink and a real Qalam (reed pen). Abdullah’s workshop at last year’s Celebrating Syria Festival was very positively received by Arabic and non-Arabic participants alike, and was over-subscribed (pun intended!). Book your place quickly to avoid disappointment!
A self-taught artist, Abdullah has been practising Arabic calligraphy since 2012. He has presented many calligraphy workshops and short courses and has demonstrated live calligraphy for visitors at many public events both in Manchester, where he is based, and across the UK. Abdullah is a member of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators and also of the North West Calligraphers Association.
If you cannot make this workshop, Abdullah will lead another workshop at the Whitworth Art Gallery on Sunday 14th October at 11:00-16:00 as part of Family Creative Celebration.
