Arabic calligraphy conference at the national school of glass

Last weekend in France, we had ‘Les Journées du patrimoine’ (National Heritage days).
It was the opportunity for me to speak about a conference I gave in the National Glass School (ENV), in Auvergne, in the centre of France.

In March 2016, I had the pleasure to give a conference about Arabic calligraphy to the students at this Art School.

They were pleasant, attentive and curious.

After my conference, I had a beautiful visit of the school, it was fascinating! 🙂
I have always admired and been interested in arts and crafts; that’s why I was happy to try blowing glass! And I noticed that it’s not easy at all!

Our breath and posture are very important.

When the students graduate from the ENV, they work for luxury crystal brands like Baccarat, Lalique or Saint-Louis.

It was a fascinating day that I will always remember!

See you for the next post! 🙂
