The second week – a Calligraphy Moon.

Today we held the second session of 2015 at Rossendale Valley Islamic School – developing the introduction to calligraphy that Farzana was leading last week. Today the group learned to write their own names in Arabic calligraphy, and then write the words DIFFERENT MOONS, again in Arabic, but in the form of a crescent moon:

There’s now a two week break at the Haslingden Community Link centre. It closes for Easter and then Shamshad and Farzana will continue these classes, as well as begin a series of workshops with South Asian women.
