sana bella ebrahimJoin Sana-Bella for a mid-week 2-day Calligraphy workshop which will harness your creativity. The BRC will provide the ideal backdrop for bamboo and glass pen swirlings.

This English Calligraphy course will cover the Italic, Uncial, and Gothic - Lucida Blackletter scripts. "The letter-form contours create a symphony on the page that is at once mesmerising, traditional and aesthetically elaborate," says Sana-Bella. "Participants will make an impression by advancing their skills in decorative handwriting. The process is meditative and self-affirming." Writing personal names with an elegant glass pen will add to the enchantment. A calligraphy pen and notebook will be provided. See www.facebook.com/ArtScribesGlobalGalaxy
