Learning Arabic Calligraphy

August 10, 2007 at 9:02 am Leave a comment

I had my first class in Arabic calligraphy last week. I’ve been itching to do this for a long time but didn’t know where to get started. Lucky me when I moved to Jordan I found out that a master of calligraphy lived just one block down from me. Not only that but he holds a weekly free class each Friday morning.

So this week I have to go out and get some real supplies. The first thing he told me was to look out for the type of pen I get. A traditional Latin-based calligraphy pen is completely different from the needs of a Traditional Arabic calligraphy pen. Arabic calligraphy calls for a reed/pen that has an angled end.
