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.
-Arry, of Apna Rosendale
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.
I have even been to Istanbul and sourced quality equipment to use during my workshops. Now, every student has access to their own ink and a reed pen, and can use these throughout the session. I take advice and learn from people who are more experienced than me, and I make sure every student has one-to-one help and guidance. The students can also have a go at using my larger calligraphy pens; to experiment and express their creativity. In short, these sessions can be tailored to fit any age group at any kind of venue.

- 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!
-Yasmine, Workshop Student
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.
