Ye Olde Medieval/Renaissance Writing Kit Set $27.00

Pining to practice historic writing? Yearning to pen like the monks of yore? Seeking to scribble like a scribe?

Yeah, we totally get that.
That’s why us at Scribal Workshop have put together this medieval and renaissance period writing kit.

The kit contains:
*Three 1/4 oz bottles of historic ink
*Two hand-cut and hardened quills
*An instructional pamphlet with extremely interesting nuggets of historic information, including how quills are cut and hardened, how parchment is prepared, and how to write a historic Gothic calligraphy alphabet

The inks are an olive green buckthorn berry ink, a black iron gall/oak gall ink, and a red brazilwood ink. Each of these inks is made using medieval and renaissance period recipes and techniques.
The two quills consist of either grey goose or barred turkey quills. (The kit above is pictured with two grey goose quills.) If you have a preference for quill type please specify, and if you have a preference for how your quill is cut (fine or thick point) please specify that as well. 

Everything we sell is hand made by us at Scribal Workshop right here in the U.S.A.

For international orders, please convo (contact) me and I will give a shipping quote and set up a special listing for you.

Please note: The book & parchment in the picture are not part of the kit– they're just for display.
