Hi l would like to attend a Caligraphy class, as l am a student at the IHGS in Canterbury and we will be reading and writing in the form of Old Script writing of the 15 century. I feel that if l understand how the pen/quill was used back then, by understanding how it is produced then this will help me with my Degree course.
Thank you for your time Kate Scoltock
