Renowned Afghan master calligrapher, Alibaba Awrang, will conduct a two-day workshop to introduce experienced artists and beginners to Persian calligraphy.

One of the world’s leading living Persian calligraphers, with works hanging in museums throughout the Eastern world, Awrang will explain the historical role of calligraphy as an art form that conveys human emotions, aspirations, and beauty. He is a master at Nastal’liq calligraphy, a fluid calligraphic script developed in the 14th century in Iran that remains to this day one of the most expressive forms of aesthetic refinement. It is considered “the bride of calligraphy.” Awrang often fuses letters with images to produce a contemporary approach to this traditional art form.

Following a presentation, Awrang will demonstrate his art; and then invite you to try your hand (more specifically, your bamboo pen, with inks and paint, on paper) at creating your own original piece of calligraphy.

The Workshop will be limited to 8 members, in order to allow Awrang to provide individual assistance. All materials will be provided at no additional cost.
