This was my first time in Dubai and my first time at Tashkeel.
Huda Abi Farès invited me to run with her an Arabic type design workshop for beginner. At first we had a full day to introduce the Arabic script and type. Huda gave a thorough historical lecture then I talked about the design of Arabic fonts. The day continued with a series of exercises. After that we met the attendees every evening for 5 days. Meanwhile next door Khajag Apelian was teaching the advanced group.
