Manuscript Pen Company announces return of World Calligraphy Day

Budding calligraphers and all artists are being encouraged to get their pens at the ready, as Manuscript Pen Company announces the return of World Calligraphy Day.

Following a successful debut year, Manuscript Pen Company will take the event to the Pen Museum for a second year on the 15th August. On the day, a whole host of creatives will run free workshops, including Joyce Lee, James Lewis and a bespoke Ottoman calligraphy session that promise to please.

Alongside the inspiring calligraphy classes, the Museum will be exploring the rich history and manufacturing heritage of the second city with immersive and informative history sessions.

The yearly event saw record numbers flock to the Birmingham venue in 2017 and it is hoped that more families and calligraphers will visit the museum for the event's second birthday.

Charlie Stockbridge, Managing Director of Manuscript Pen Company said, "World Calligraphy Day exceeded our expectations in 2017 and we can't wait to celebrate the art of beautiful writing for a second year.

"We've got plenty planned for the big day and can't wait to see writers of all ages visit the Pen Museum to get involved."

Alongside the Pen Museum, Manuscript Pen Company are working with the Birmingham Children's Hospital on the 'Say Something Special' campaign, to encourage people of all ages to put pen to paper.

Celebrities, business people, politicians and the general public are being asked to handwrite letters to someone important in their life. These will be sent to the Birmingham Children's Hospital, alongside Manuscript product for their art classes. 

Social Media is also expected to be abuzz with top-tips, videos and competitions to spread the message of calligraphy beyond Birmingham.
