Arabic Calligraphy, Commission art, Events, Workshops, Exhibition

My journey with Arabic calligraphy has been a great experience so far. It has required me to study lots and grow as an artist. Nowadays I spend most of my time making the art that I want, trying out different styles and new ideas.

Whitaker Museum Exhibition

My work was displayed for a month in the Whitaker Museum, mid 2017. The exhibition consisted of 4 pieces of art, including my largest ever: an A1 sized gold leaf painting proclaiming “My Lord, increase me in knowledge.” This was all part of the On Paper Festival.

During the second week of this festival, I visited Haslingden to run 2 calligraphy workshops. I was met with a variety of students, all very keen to learn calligraphy.

  • Dear Azim.
    It was amazing to have you visit our humble surroundings and providing such insight! Love to have you visit again.

Past Events & Workshops

I’ve traveled round the UK to perform live calligraphy and teach beginners workshops. In April 2016, I visited Al-Noor School in Aberdeen to introduce a group of kids to Arabic calligraphy. Then, a year later, I re-visited them with a better and more refined course.

These workshops have always generated a lot of interest and have been the highlight of many larger events. Due to my eagerness to study calligraphy under the instruction from a master, I am not currently teaching workshops or classes. However, if you are interested in having calligraphy lessons taught, I can advise you on other calligraphers in the UK who would be willing to assist.

  • Just want to give a big shout out to Azim Rehmat Din for hosting a great Calligraphy class in Edinburgh. As the class was small he was able to give a lot of attention to everyone. We went into great detail which makes a big difference.

    -Imran Iqbal, Workshop Student

  • Working with Azim was a wonderful experience. Even though I had a clear idea of what I wanted my logo to represent, Azim contributed to the collaborative process immensely with new fresh ideas. At the end we had a well balanced, meaningful logo that will be identifiable to our future customers.

    -Kelvin Smart of Elixir Sport

  • I have always been interested in calligraphy but wasn’t able to find suitable classes. This was my first and it was a really great session! Thankyou very much!

    -Rahima, Workshop Student

  • A really enjoyable workshop that shed light on something I’ve been fascinated by for a long time. Thank you!

99 Names

The 99 names of God by Chickpea Press is a great learning resource for everyone. Children and adults can enjoy studying the names of God whilst engaging with the activities on each page.

I designed all of the names featured in the book and am thrilled to be part of such a unique publication.

We are thrilled with Azim’s work on the 99 Names of God book. He tailored his calligraphy style according to our needs; clean and accessible for younger readers, while retaining a unique flourish all his own! -Saimma Dyer of Chickpea Press
