In this session, Calligrapher and Lettering Artist Lucy Khanam, will teach you how to write 'Eid Mubarak' in both Faux Arabic and Modern Calligraphy, before transferring on to your greeting card.

You’ll also learn how to use everyday materials such as tea/coffee and watercolours to stain a card to create your own unique design.

As part of your ticket price you will also receive a PDF copy of the 'Basic Beginners Arabic Calligraphy Workbook' in your post event email.
