Aberdeen Mosque Workshop 2017

This was my second Calligraphy Workshop in Aberdeen. Last year I was invited by Al-Noor School to work with a group of kids and introduce them to Calligraphy. This year, I returned but due to the low number of kids who signed up, the Workshop was opened up to the rest of the community.

I’m glad that I was able to teach adults as well – the Workshop turned out around 20 people. It was a perfect sized class for the timescale that was involved. I think the students really flourished and engaged with the material. Many of them were excelling with the compositions, and produced some fantastic work. It was a relief that we quickly moved past letters on went onto writing words and phrases in the second half.
