Quranic Illumination

Project Partner: Mahmud Manning – Artist
Location: Bradford
Programme: Part of Amal Connects 2023

Quranic Illumination is one of the co-created projects, part of our Amal Connects programme. This project has inspired future artisans, enabling a pathway for the latent talent in Bradford’s communities to emerge and to practice a rich Muslim cultural tradition, bringing participants’ own voices and values into this tradition. They worked intensively with artist Mahmud Manning to explore geometric patterns, calligraphy, paper preparation, illumination and other skills.  The project culminated in the creation of their own pieces of Quranic illumination.
