    Salam all! Just discovered this wonderful network and am turning to you for some help.

    I'm an American teacher trainer based in Amman for the next eight months, at least. I speak, read and write Arabic, and would now like to learn Arabic calligraphy. Do you know of any instructors/classes in the city? Ideally, I'd like a small class or even one-on-one instruction. My budget is a bit limited, so perhaps a young or new calligrapher would be the person for me. Any suggestions will be more than welcome!

    Cheers,
    Ted Way

    Hey Ted!
    Welcome to the forum! I lived and studied in Amman for a while, I found some calligraphers there by asking around at the colleges. Unfortunately, there aren't that many proper calligraphers left in Jordan, to the best of my knowledge. You could definitely find someone to teach you the basics, but I think another issue you might run across is the access to tools. I literally went to every art store in Amman and spoke to the proprietors about where to find calligraphy supplies, as I recall I got a lot of "ooh good question" and just plain "nowhere in Amman."
    Let us know how it goes!
