Activities

Looking to try a new skill? Then why not have a go at our The Written Word and The Printed Word activities, as part of #SOTSEF goes digital.

Find out about how the eighteenth-century writing masters showed ladies and gentlemen how to write in the round hand style and have a go yourself. And see our film on how to fold up your letters to send in the style of the period before envelopes were used.

Rags, bread crusts and onions, what part did they play in making a book? Find out by following the instructions to create a mini-book on hand-press printing.
