We have partnered with the Chinese Museum to present a special showcase of Chinese Arabic (Sini) calligraphy. Our special guest and master calligrapher is Haji Noor Deen Mi Guang Jiang. He will demonstrate his unique talent, combining Arabic and Chinese styles with the rhythm of his brush. He's the perfect artist to showcase:
  • Sini calligraphy - styles, tools and traditions.
  • Live demonstration of calligraphy
  • The ideas and inspiration of each piece on display
Join us to learn the rhythm of the brush. If you cannot attend this session, book your ticket at the Chinese Museum for 23 February, 11am.
