Friday Night Flicks: A Pride in Pencils

I’ve gone through quite a few pencils while working on The Wishing Star Project (The Persistence of Hope). I have been using up the random pencils that every household seems to acquire over the years. I have not been using my best writing and drawing pencils. Tonight’s main video is the story of how some of my favourite pencils are made.



If you are too busy this weekend to watch a video that lasts 13:33 minutes, perhaps you could accompany Warwick Davis and his family on a visit to The Pencil Museum in Keswick instead. I am not surprised by Davis’s enthusiasm and repeat visits. The museum is sufficiently wonderful that David and I have been there twice, bought pencils both times, and would happily return again. (We would undoubtedly buy more pencils, whether we needed them or not.)
