We are proud and delighted to announce the re-launch of the Birmingham Pen Museum with all new exhibition space TOMORROW, 10/11/16!
The space, which seeks to introduce generations- old and new- to the unique history and legacy that is the steel pen trade of Birmingham, is now benefiting from all new exhibitions, a new entrance, retail section and activity/meeting room for writers, artists and calligraphers- from around both the UK and the WORLD- to come along and be inspired and inspire others with workshops, activities and more!
Go along and delve into the history and actually hear and listen to the stories from past workers in the pen trade! Walk your way through the past with the detailed timeline of pen manufacturing history! Allow yourself to be transported back in time and relive the industrial and social heritage of the Birmingham we know today.
Whether you’re experienced or new to the art of calligraphy, why not pop along and have a go at creating a masterpiece yourself? There is a Callicreative Room ready for you and for calligraphers, artists and all creative minds.
In the retail corner you’ll be able to find a vast range of products from our very own Manuscript and Callicreative brands, with products ranging from our beautiful italic coloured markers to the Master Italic Fountain Pen and stunning gift sets, all designed in celebration of the graceful art of writing and calligraphy.
Share the stories and the joy! Be informed and inspired! Spread the word; the art of writing is very much alive and flourishing in the heart of the country. Be a part of it!
