Arabic calligraphy embellishes the finest architecture, art and design across the Arab world. Learn the magic and meaning behind these elegant swirls and symbols from the pen masters. Our guests will receive private, hands-on instruction in these traditional techniques from some of our favourite local artists. Curated workshops are an engaging, fun way to connect first-hand with the traditional arts of Sharjah from manuscripts and papermaking to pottery and glass blowing. Then travel back in time by visiting some of the best museums and art galleries in the capital of the Islamic Cultural Capital of the Arab World guided by our local cultural experts.
