Arabic calligraphy workshop

Can Arabic calligraphy facilitate a cross-cultural dialogue?

Last Friday we collaborated with De Voorkamer to host a calligraphy workshop, run by Hamza Gaderi. Getting a glimpse of the fascinating art of Arabic calligraphy was a great experience!

As you probably heard before: we’re running a research project on Arabic letters that culminates into a typography and calligraphy festival: Arabic Type Fest at Spring House. Next to the masters of type and graphic design, Hamza will give one more calligraphy workshop for the beginners.
