Calligraphy is part of the Activity day for either The Tudors or the Medieval period. Students are taught to write using a quill and a water-based ink. The Tudor period also uses a ‘copybook’ which can be kept by the children to use in class.

When at Bolton Castle, the children undertake this activity by candlelight to help give them a true appreciation of the ‘light’ their ancestors would have had to work under.
