Derwent pencils - samples
The Cumberland Pencil Company, manufacturers of Derwent fine art pencils, is the leading, and now the only, pencil manufacturer in the UK. Derwent has a long and distinguished heritage, stretching back to the discovery of graphite in the Borrowdale area in the early 1500s. Pencils have been made in Cumbria since 1832 and generations of local craftsmen have used their unique skills to perfect the art of pencil making.
The Company is offering students free sample packs of Derwent Eco Sketching pencils, perfect for drawing or visualising. This offer is available until 31 March 2012. For more information, download a copy of Derwents Artscene magazine at:http://www.pencils.co.uk/artscene.aspx
