Fountain Pen Inks adored at Rochester Cathedral workshop!

Beasts - Rs

Just some of beautiful illuminated ‘R’s created during the Illuminating Beasts project at Rochester Cathedral. With 68 students (ranging from ages 6 to 82 years – some with special needs), 12 small bottles of various coloured Diamine fountain pen inks, 16 dip pens, 16 brushes and some cartridge paper over 6 workshops of 2.5 hours each – What do you think? Costwise it was the best value workshop the cathedral have run to-date with 100% satisfaction score on the evaluation!

The most frequent comments were:
‘I have never used fountain pen inks in this way before’
‘I never knew there so many colours available in fountain pen inks’
‘The bleach effect was awesome!’

I don’t think I need to ram the point home any further!

    • Hard work but some great results. The interesting aspect of all the workshops was that all the students really got into it – all ages and all abilities.

  1. This was a great idea for a workshop! And such wonderful results. A wonderful project and great marketing for fountain pen inks to top it. 🙂 I wonder how many of them went and bought themselves a set to continue that craft.

  2. I know for a fact that the Head of Art at Brompton Academy has ordered a selection of Diamines for the school. I have also provided web links for Diamine to 7 other individuals.

  3. Lovely
    Love it ……in my part of the world I cannot share the love for writing with fountain pens,calligraphy, inks and stuff
    Feels to be alive
