Ok, lets be frank, I wasn't expecting this to be particularly fun. I hoped it may hold some interest but wasn't expecting this.
Spent a good hour or so feeling that i had only scratched the surface of this little treasure of a museum. had hardly got my bearings before being engaged by one of the numerous enthusiastic volunteers to try our hands at nib making.
This is not interactive as the web is, this is better. Getting the genuine feel (if albeit only briefly) of the processes. Its the kind of thing that you used to see visiting dignatries do on the opening of new factory, and indeed we were made to feel like VIPs all afternoon.
But there were more and more things hidden away, and whislt I didn't get chance to look round everything as my compadres started trying out their rather smart calligraphy skills whilst I got clumsily covered in ink this pelased me as it will give an excuse to return again and this time leave a more worthy donation. Thank you to all who entertained us so well. Very friendly and very knowledgable and with a real enthusaism for their subject.
