Come along to the museum and learn how to write with old fashioned quills and dip pens. Quill pens were invented around the 6th century and were made from a feather of a large bird such as a goose or turkey. The point of the feather was treated so it could be used for dipping into ink and writing. By the mid- 19th century quills were replaced with steel pen points, both were known as dip pens. At the museum learn all the techniques to writing with a quill or dip pen and keep this dying art form alive.
