About this event
We’re excited to bring to the Archive this popular workshop from Lebanese designer and educator Nada Abdallah. Finding inspiration in the Kufic script, a geometric form of Arabic calligraphy, you’ll add multicultural imagination to your lettering.
The easy-to-follow exercises begin with words that relate to “peace,” giving you the skills to produce messages of creativity and hope. The resulting wordshapes offer a modular and dynamic toolkit for animations, patterns, and other motifs.
