Saturday 23rd September was my first first proper ink and bleach workshop and an international one at that! Very kindly hosted by Catherine Van Hove at her gorgeous Sakura Fountain Pen Gallery in Diest, Belgium, with ink kindly supplied by Robert Oster. If you'd like to know how the day unfolded there is a full write up on my blog, with some images.

Thanks for your kind words. I felt that 2 hours was the perfect amount of time and the 4 tasks achievable within the timeframe. The students worked hard and the quality of the visual outcomes they achieved was testament to that. I think they were pleasantly surprised at what they created too. I'll be running some more workshops here in UK soon. Thanks for your feedback and support. N

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
