Arabic Calligraphy: Tools and Techniques

Organised by DCT - Abu Dhabi

Arabic calligraphy is written using a traditional pen made of reed. The earliest style is known as the Kufic style, which has sharper edges and corners compared to many of the other later developed styles such as Thuluth, Diwani, Riq’ah and others.

In this course, you will learn all the basic techniques of this magnificent art, in addition to various tools and methods to perfect this craft. These writing styles can be thought of as different font types, and the tip of the reed pen is cut differently for each. Through this course students will learn about the various writing styles and techniques of the art of the written word.
