Delving Deeper Into The Splendor

Following the success of the first workshop, we are aiming to delve further into the possible re-integration of Arabic Calligraphy in our cultural identity. We are pleased to announce yet another workshop for amateurs and anyone interested in Arabic calligraphy with the supervision of the Amman-based Syrian calligrapher Mr. Saleh Nasab.

The workshop will be consisting of a comprehensive course alongside 3 intensive courses exploring the main Arabic calligraphy styles; Diwani, Ta’lalik & Thuluth.

The main objectives of the workshop:

› Reflect upon the beauty of Arabic Lettering.
› To be introduced the techniques of writing, tools and the materials related to calligraphy.
› Define of the usages of Arabic Calligraphy as a modern art form and the role of calligraphy in contemporary design.
› Briefly look at the development of calligraphy through history, and discuss proposed methods for future development.
› Study and experiment with the existing and extinct types of Arabic calligraphy.
› Explore closely the main Arabic Calligraphy styles and schools (Diwani, Ta'alik & Thuluth).

About the workshop:

The workshop will be consisted of four courses:
1- The Comprehensive Course:


An Abbreviated course, focusing on studying and practicing the existing and extinct types and styles of Arabic calligraphy. The course is made of 6 sessions; each one is 2 hours long on Saturdays. The participants have the option to choose from the following time slots:

a. Morning session
from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM
b. Afternoon session
from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
c. Evening session
from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Diwani and Ruka'a sample
2- The Diwani Course (Also featuring Ruka'a Style)


Dynamic and harmonic, playful as an acrobat in a circus. Diwani was one of the encrypted scripts of the Ottoman Empire. This style provides freedom that allows anyone to personalise it with the results of having magnificent and inspiring shapes. As well as Ruka'a; this is the common practical and quick Arabic calligraphic style.

The course consists of 18 sessions; each will last 90 minutes. Will be running over 3 Days a week; Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday.
From 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM.

Farsi and Shakesteh sample
3- The Ta'alik/Farsi Course (Also featuring Shekasteh Style)


A neat, sophisticated and straightforward style. Originally shaped in old Persia. It is used on a wide scale in signs across Arabia for its legibility. Nowadays, it became a popular style among young Iranian graphic designers. Shekasteh style comes from the same family of Farsi, yet more freeform and less restrictive.

The course consists of 18 sessions; each will last 90 minutes. Will be running over 3 Days a week; Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday. From 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM
Thulth and Naskh sample
4- The Thuluth Course (Also featuring Naskh Style)


Thuluth is considered to be a spiritual, classical and elegant style, since it’s mostly used for Qur'anic script as well as being an element of the interior design of Mosques across the Islamic World. Naskh on the other hand is considered to be the core ingredient of the modern and traditional Arabic typography.

The course consists of 18 sessions; each will last 90 minutes. Will be running over 3 Days a week; Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday. From 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM.

Notes:

› Every participant will be provided with all the necessary tools and equipments; paper, ink & calligraphy pens (Reeds).
› Participants will receive a certificate upon the completion of the workshop.
› A chance to create an individual calligraphic artwork will be given to the participants

Update

Due some reasons related to the booking of the workshop's place, We'll change the sessions' place for the intensive specialized courses (Diwani, Ta'alik/Farsi & Thuluth) to another location, which is Jordan Meningitis Foundation in Mecca Street.
The schedule of courses will remain as is.
We hope that the change of location won't bother or interrupt your signing to the workshop. And we apologies for any inconvenience regarding that.
A Percentage of the fees will be deducted to sport the Jordan Meningitis Foundation and its activities.
The comprehensive course will remain in the same schedule and the same place; At Wild Jordan Café.

Regards,

Hussein

Hi Rana..

I'm so sorry.. currently we don't have any plans to do such workshops in Lebanon.. but, we might consider that in the near future :)

anyway, i think you know about Pascal Zoghbi's activities.. the guy is really super cool in Kufi.. you can get benefits from him while your stay in Lebanon..

salam!
