Description

Friday 2nd August and 16th August

In an age before fountain pens and Biro’s, everyone had to use a quill and ink to write.


To be able to write clearly using a feather quill and ink, it took enormous amounts of practice and care so that letters were not smudged.


Drop into this family activity session in the museum from 11am to 1pm on several dates this season.

Practice writing the old fashioned way and finish off your letter with a wax seal and ribbon.

Normal admission applies - free for members.

Also will be held on Friday 1st November
