We were shown how to make a simple writing pen out of a drink can.
A fine point and a wide point nib.
We were asked to start writing with our dominant hand and then change to the other.
Top 2 lines - I am left handed and the writing below it with my right hand.
Our writing was not to be perfect but scrawled with character.
After the drying of the ink, used the nib in the dirty rinsing water between the lines.
Not too bad for someone who is not right handed.
Our next sheet consisted of labels. Interesting, as I started to take off the labels, the bits of the decorated sheet didn't look anything like it was.
Our afternoon was taken up with preparing more sheets of paper with stencils made out of polystyrene and a printing plate. I bought a bottle of Chinese ink and a fine haired pen came with it. Worked over the sheets with fine brushstrokes.

Bark from the gum tree.
Along the edge of the school building are beds of white stones.
