Siyah Qalam lecture
Here's the Siyah Qalam class lecture so you can download and see all the images. I talk through these as part of the introductory spiel that makes up the first part of each Siyah Qalam class and the students are welcome to keep these after (as long as they are for educational purposes, etc). The cycle of elements starts with the Rocks (Earth) and continues with Clouds (Air), Water, Fire and Ether. Siyah Qalam is kind of the culmination of the cycle - or its very beginning, as the skill of brush handling is relevant to both beginners and the advanced. Phew! And now you're ready for a Masterclass!
