June events in the studio!

Journal Entry: Sun May 29, 2016, 10:07 AM

I am offering one-day calligraphy workshops in my studio throughout June, followed by my annual open studio day :D If you're around London, drop in!


Back to the Source: The Mystery of Kufi

This is a one-day taster workshop where we will return to the very earliest, and long abandoned, style of manuscript Kufi. I will talk in some depth about the origins of the script, its particular qualities and its spiritual purpose. We will then learn to write key letters with the reed pen, also going over their deeper meaning. The session is meant to be immersive and meditative rather than results-oriented, with participants encouraged to work at their own pace. From there a full course may take shape for anyone who wishes to complete a technical training in this style.

Dates: Three sessions will be held in June: Saturday 11, Sunday 19 and Saturday 25, from 11:00 till 16:00.
Price: £50 with print-outs and materials provided.
Venue: 55 Southwark Street, SE1 1RU (London Bridge tube or Blackfriars station).
To book, please PM me with the date(s) that suit you, so I can arrange groups – I can take 6 students at a time.


Sunday 26 June, 13:00 till 19:00 at the venue above (free entry)

Come and see the latest work in person, and sit down for a relaxing colouring session with a cup of tea – yes, it's an interactive open studio and we can have a chat while playing with pencils and watercolour. Artwork will be available at a special Solstice Discount price and there will be the usual small items for purchase: prints, scarves, cards, booklets, colouring books and whatever else I come up with by then.
Hoping to see a few deviants there! :party:


Majnouna's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
"One of the fundamental conditions of happiness is to know that everything that one does has a meaning in eternity" - Titus Burckhardt

I trained in graphic design and my body of work encompasses illustration, comics, tutorials, digital games and children's books. I was apprenticed to a master calligrapher for several years and I am now settled in London, UK, where I am dedicated full-time to my own calligraphy, going deeper into the potential of the ancient art of the Kufic script, which I also teach, while pursuing illustration for my own pleasure. I'm also an avid cook and baker, and all-time animal lover, with a passion for ethnography and a history of globetrotting.

You'll find my work on my dual website, Majnouna (calligraphy) / Cedarseed (everything else). My CV is here.
