Appreciate and learn the timeless art of Arabic calligraphy in the Qatar National Library training workshop to continue its great tradition yourself.
Arabic calligraphy has a centuries-long history with deep cultural and religious roots. A practical instrument used to record literature at first, calligraphy soon established itself as a venerated visual art form that Quran scholars used as a means to express themselves and the environment around them.
Over a large period of time and spanning various regions of the Islamic world, calligraphy blossomed into an art form boasting various styles and growing increasingly intricate and detailed.
The Qatar National Library training workshop is currently fully booked, but if you wish you may register in their website to be placed on a waiting list.
