I am going to be at the newly-refurbished, world-famous Pencil Museum next week, in Keswick in the heart of Englan’d’s beautiful Lake district.
The Museum was almost destroyed with the winter floods of 2015 and it has taken this long to get up and running again. I can’t wait to see the new demonstration area – I’m told there is a whole lot more room now, so come along and meet me.
Learn all about how pencils were invented and first made in Keswick and see all the fantastic drawing products in the Derwent Pencils Shop.
I’ll have books for sale there too which I will happily sign.
