Square Kufic is a geometric style of calligraphy that has often been used in the architecture of the Muslim world, either through inscriptions in stone or through the use of different coloured bricks or tiles.

Join us on Saturday 9th March 2024 at the MIAH Islamic Arts Gallery to learn about square Kufic. We will look at examples of square kufic in art and architecture from the Muslim world, including in UK museum collections. You will have a go and creating your own design before re-creating a square kufic composition as a paper weave. This workshop is being delivered as part of the ‘Balsall Heath Second Saturdays’ programme – a monthly mini-festival celebrating making, creativity, community, local culture and the arts, held on the second Saturday of every month.

To secure your place, please book in advance. We will allow a small number of walk-up bookings on the day, subject to availability, if they arrive by the start time.

Thanks to the @barakat_org and the Heritage Fund, this workshop has been partially subsidised to ensure accessibility. We request a donation of £8 or more towards materials and costs.
Who is this workshop for? All levels of ability are welcome. Suitable for ages 9-99+ years – younger participants may require additional adult support. All materials are provided.
