Şeyh Hamdulllah Calligraphy Apprenticeship Program

Once you have joined the class, you will be initiated into the Şeyh Hamdulllah Calligraphy Apprenticeship Program. Apprenticeship is defined as "the method or process of gaining knowledge of a trade, art, or profession from the instruction of a master”. In this case, calligraphy is the trade, art, profession and devotional act, and the master is Haji Noor Hoca. Students will travel together on this path, supporting and learning from one another, creating community and camaraderie, moving from semester to semester to master the skills according to their Hoca's instruction. Apprenticeships will continue until Ijazah (certificates of mastery), are granted by the master to the apprentice.
