My name is Syed Sha abul Hassan Quadri, my friends call me Syed …. As my name is very long.
I am a professional Calligrapher , teacher and student of Penmanship.
You can follow my work on Syed’s Calligraphy.
I am also a Pensmith (penmaker). I make my own pens and I also sell my pens at my website Syed’s Pen .
I make all my pens according to my knowledge of scripts and the angles used in those scripts . I keep in mind all the main concepts that can effect the pens writing and it’s movements.
How I began my journey.
I started my Penmanship journey in 2014 inspired by ( Michael r Sull , john decollibus and L.Madarasz).
I live in India , I did B.A in arabic as degree , when I started my journey there was no such thing as flex nib or oblique holder in India. I struggled allot and finally found a semi flex nib made an oblique holder for myself with ball pen cap ,chopstick and some tape. I used fish medicine as ink, and started practicing . I got all rare books from iampeth and started studying it. I learnd allot from teachings of C.P.Zaner , F.B.Courtney and L.Madarasz. I always keep saying myself ‘thoughtful practice leads to progress’ and now I am teaching engrosser’s script all over india at minimal cost and make premium quality Oblique holders for my living. I m very happy with what I am doing and I simply love my penmanship.
I really want to learn more and see the specimens of my ideals in real.
Meet everyone, and learn as much as I can , I am fond of traditional methods of penmanship , I teach only in that way . My main motive is to become so good that one day I can become the first master penman from india. N I want to bring back The Golden Age of Penmanship, this time it will be India
