The Lost Art of Writing

September 03, 2023 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Put ink to paper and try your hand at calligraphy as a historian guides you through a 19th century writing lesson. Practice your script with quill and ink and take inspiration from the love letters that stole the hearts of the women of Oakley some 200 years ago. In this unique experience, you will be able to read and transcribe family letters from deep within our archives, and compose your own letter to mail to a friend, complete with a wax seal.  1:00-3:00 PM
