Haji Noor Deen Calligraphy Workshop
Born in Shandong province, China, Haj Noor Deen, is a master calligrapher whose work represents a synthesis between Chinese and Arabic calligraphic forms.
In December 2013 Haji Noor Deen visited Cardiff and the Islam UK Centre in partnership with CYAN two events were hosted. On Tuesday the 3rd Haji Noor Deen gave a lecture about his work which included a demonstration of his art. The following evening he held a workshop where learners were able to try their hand at traditional calligraphy. Haji Nor Deen hand carved each participant a traditional bamboo dip pen and worked with the whole group as well as one to one tuition.
