I just signed up for your class. I'd like to make a fountain pen instead of a ballpoint pen if that's possible.

I'll see you there!

I actually haven't been able to find a fountain pen kit for this class that costs less than 30 dollars for the kit, which is prohibitively expensive for the class. However i'll be happy to show you where to get one and set up a time for you to do it yourself.
