Play, Cut, Stamp by Lara Captan & Kristian Sarkis

As a part of the Arabic Lettering Series, Lara Captan and Kristyan Sarkis, the founders and directors of Arabic Type Design Beirut, conducted a two-day workshop with the GDES students in the Spring of 2020. Participants designed Arabic lettering by changing various parameters and produced the final designs from wood to create block prints. Both Sarkis and Captan are award-winning Arabic-type designers who also provided a lecture for the wider community in the VCUarts Qatar atrium.
