A new Student (or two)!
« on: July 08, 2024, 10:05:11 AM »
My husband has taught himself how to turn calligraphy pens and it has become a new obsession for him! He finally made himself a pen and asked me to teach him Engrosser's Script so he can properly use it. We had a great first lesson which was ended when our Siberian, Bloo, decided it was dinner time and Adam was done writing.

P.S. Adam was shocked at how quickly 3 hours went by and just wanted to "try one more" before stopping. This is going to work out nicely for me. Wish I thought of it years ago - LOL!  ;D

Terrific. That's a good looking pen.
Good luck, Adam--you have a great teacher.

Thanks @AnasaziWrites - the pen inspired him to learn as he made it for himself.  ;D

Thank you @darrin1200 ! That is so kind of you! He may take you up on that. He loves connecting with other pen makers.  :-*
