Come(any age) to learn about fountain pens, especially family members that want to become more familiar with a spouses hobby
This is a program sponsored by the Pen Collectors of America (PCA) and run by calligrapher, artist, and Pen World Magazine Contributing Editor, Deborah Basel. We will briefly discuss the history of writing implements and the children will get a chance to try grinding ink on an ink stone with Japanese stick ink. While they are taking turns grinding ink, testing the ink, and admiring the materials displayed, Basel will execute each child’s name in calligraphy. Fountain pens will be provided to each child. This will be followed by some note writing and origami crafts. We will also have a door prize drawing – but you have to be there to win!
