Hello from England
« on: August 21, 2017, 04:29:21 PM »
Hi Everybody

Andrew here from England. Recently Iíve taken a much greater interest in calligraphy, in particular Copperplate and Spencerian, also dip pen and ink sketching.
Iíve been an engineer all my working life and have finally decided to have a go at making my own dip pen holders and fountain pens from scratch.
I tend to write with a fountain pen exclusively now, although just for note taking, and enjoy those precious few moments during a busy day when I can put pen to paper and watch the ink flow, very relaxing.

And a warm welcome from Lancashire. (Despite what the politicians say!)
