An Introduction to Medieval Ink

If, like me, you've always wanted to know more about how medieval ink was made, then you'll already be heading to the Eventbrite to book a place on tomorrow morning's session (11am-12pm GMT) with Sara Charles. 
Iron gall ink has been used since Classical times, and due to its long-lasting durability it became the most common ink during the medieval period. This introductory talk will cover the history of iron gall ink and then discuss the natural ingredients used in the process, including the lifecycle of the gall wasp. The talk will last 25 minutes, followed by a 15 minute pre-recorded demonstration.
