Details

A practical workshop looking at writing through the ages.

Make your own pen and ink, the only thing you won't make is the paper! This fun practical workshop is part of our Civil Wars weekend and has a Civil Wars theme, so you also get an introduction to some of the contemporary writing styles.

Please note, as this workshop runs during a large event on the Castle bailey, you may need to allow extra time to park. You may also wish to enjoy the event, admission to which is free.

All persons aged between 16 and 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
