The Iran Heritage Foundation is delighted to offer once again a course in Persian Calligraphy, with teaching provided online.
ten-week exercise-based course is suitable for all levels, from
beginners to advanced. It is based on a one-to-one teaching method, so
everyone will be given the instructions based on their own level and
will learn the writing techniques of the Nasta'liq script during the
course, and the first session will start with a general introduction to
the traditional tools, materials, and various
Islamic calligraphy styles.
Although previous knowledge
of Persian language is not necessary, you will enjoy the course more if
you have familiarity with the alphabets and particularly the language,
as the materials are constantly engaged with Persian language and
The course will be taught online and
remotely. Every Wednesday the teacher will send each student a personal
guided video providing demonstration for the writing of an example
sentence. The student will have the next week to practice and return
photographs of their work to the teacher, who will then provide another
video of comments and advice, along with new sentences to practice. For
those requiring materials, a special pack including a traditional reed
pen cut and prepared by the teacher, paper and ink, can be posted to the
student for an additional charge of £20.
