To Quill or Not to Quill: Exploring the Art of Writing with Quill and Ink.
Beethoven did not have the luxury of sitting down at his computer and composing using the latest software; a simple goose quill pen, a bottle of ink, and blank paper were his tools. Local calligraphy teacher Marian Gault will give a demonstration of how to prepare, cut, and write with a quill.
