Where to learn

Lebanon Traveler - - THROUGH AN ARTIST’S EYES -

If you’re in­ter­ested in learn­ing cal­lig­ra­phy, Haw­ila of­fers work­shops in riqa’ script. It’s a form of cal­lig­ra­phy that dates back to the 10th Cen­tury, its name com­ing from the Ara­bic word ruq’a mean­ing a piece of cloth – be­cause it was once writ­ten on small pieces to pe­ti­tion the royal rule.
