The elegance that overwhelms you when you find yourself surrounded by the impressive architecture of Iranian mosques and when you look at the gorgeous pages of Persian poetry books is so much indebted to the charming intricacy of their calligraphic designs. Understanding this intricacy is the key to a genuine understanding of Persian culture.

Checking out a calligraphy workshop for a few hours to discover the love, skill, and spiritual devotion that has been giving a divine spirit to Persian calligraphic artworks will be one of the sweetest experiences in Iran.
