Islamic Calligraphy: Methods, Materials & Training with Soraya Syed

Our Arts of Islam display is no longer at the Museum of Royal Worcester, but we have pleasure in sharing this wonderful film, commissioned by the Islamic Art SSN as part of their ACE funded activities, in which Soraya Syed gives an excellent introduction to calligraphy, including how to be a good student (and master!) with all the finesse and discipline it requires.

While you’re here, check out our learning from home activities around this wonderful collaboration between the Museum of Royal Worcester and the subject specialist network for museum professionals responsible for UK collections of Islamic art and material culture.
