Using ancient techniques, learn the process of making ink from the Oak gall and create your very own historical, caligraphic initial.
Gall Ink was a traditional, indelible ink used throughout history for important documents such as the Magna Carta, and Leonardo Da Vinci’s drawings of Adam. Discover the history of liturgical Headstone Manor and develop your own marvellous letterhead, worthy of the important land documents created here.

Suitable for ages 5+ and their adults! This is a messy workshop so please wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty!
