Used for writing royal decrees and other documents, diwani calligraphy is known for its beauty and harmony on the page. This 4-session course introduces this exquisite script, progressing from writing letters to sentences over the course of the programme. This workshop is more suitable if you have already completed a Ruq'ah course with us.
