- Shams Anwari Alhosseyni
Islamic calligraphy developed gradually into a universal art which incorporated all other forms of art. This art is based on a theoretical fundament which is derived from Vedic mathematics, philosophy and cosmology. Thus calligraphhy is also – and above all – a strictly disciplined science which is considered to be “one half of wisdom”.
In this workshop we, you, will learn about the history, the typology, the writing method and techniqe of the old and the new calligraphic style. Using individually prepared writing utensils made from bamboo and applying ink we will practice the beautiful curved characters in order to reach inner concentration and composure. A presentation of masterpieces (by beamer) will end the workshop.
