Calligraphy

A couple of years ago I went to a calligraphy workshop. As well as doing English Calligraphy we also tried doing Arabic script (I don’t have much memory of it). I do remember we used sticks cut down to make a chiseled edge to write with. Then like children learning the alphabet we wrote each letter over and over again until we started getting the shapes right.

I enjoy drawing patterns so it was really interesting to see how this style of writing worked. The artist who taught us showed us some beautiful calligraphy. Unfortunately I did not take any photos of his work. Calligraphy is clearly an art in its own right. I would love to learn more.

  1. This looks cool! I find English calligraphy very soothing mentally. I started learning Hiragana a few weeks ago (one of the Japanese scripts). I might have a go at some Japanese calligraphy when I’m feeling a bit better.
