Your Humble Servant : A Quill Pen Writing Workshop

October 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - October 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm

With original documents as your guide, create your own 18th century style letter using a quill pen, just as General Washington’s aides-de-camp did while at Headquarters Newburgh. This all-ages quill pen writing workshop will be held at Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site, Saturday and Sunday, October 7th and 8th, at 2 PM each day.

The fee is $3.00 per person and includes your own quill pen to take home. Reservations are recommended as space is limited. Please note that the ink being used is permanent. The workshop is a Path Through History Weekend event.

While at Washington’s Headquarters for the workshop, take a guided tour of the historic Headquarters and explore the Museum’s exhibits, open 11 AM until 5 PM on Saturday and 1 PM until 5 PM on Sunday.

Call 845-562-1195 for further information and to reserve your spot.
