Basic Arabic Calligraphy Johannesburg

About the course

A 7 week Basic Arabic Calligraphy in the Thuluth script hosted by Awqaf SA and Rafique Cajee.

The NUQTA is a rhomboid dot denoting the sound of the letter, but more importantly it’s use as a measure for the size and scale of the letters.
We began with the “Alif” and ended with lines and lines of Alif on several A3 sheets…
Insha Allah we look forward to the next few weeks of more letters….the Baa….the Waw….and so on to the written word.

Course details:
Saturday 2 February: Free introductory course
Course commences:
Saturday 16 February 2019….from 10:00am to 12:00pm.

It is always exciting and inspiring starting another basic Arabic calligraphy
