The Long Island Pen Show is happening this weekend. While this is as close as it gets to a local show for me, I unfortunately won’t be able to make it this year.
There will be a calligraphy workshop on Sunday, which is new this year. The cost is $25, which covers materials, including nibs and holders. The workshop runs 10am to 2pm.
The website also lists a Playing with Your Letters workshop on Sunday that runs an hour on Sunday and is free (space may be a limiting factor).
Richard Binder missed last year but is returning this year and will join several others for nib work and pen repairs.
The weather forecast calls for rain through Saturday morning but then precipitation free for the rest of the weekend.
