Inside Faber-Castell’s Pencil Factory 4


If you’re in the UK you might want to tune into BBC Two next Tuesday (19th March 2019).

The Inside The Factory series will visit Faber-Castell’s pencil factory. If you cannot wait you can watch a little preview on the BBC’s website.

The BBC seems to be rather keen on Faber-Castell. They also had some of ‘their guys’ working in the Faber-Castell factory for a previous BBC Two show and had a look at Faber-Castell and Staedtler for a previous Radio 4 programme.


I believe that showing the preview clip from BBC Two’s Inside The Factory in this blog post falls under “fair dealing” as described by the UK Copyright service.

    Hi All. From Wednesday, Since yesterday, I gave been going everywhere smelling of cedar wood (pencil wood). If you get a scent of it…..you’ll know I’m around the corner.
    Why? Those who like myself, love the natural smell of pencils can indulge themselves at Lidl at the moment for £1.49. They are selling a box of 12 wardrobe fresheners made of naturally scented pencil wood (cedar) and they are absolutely delightful. Enjoy. P

    Gianni,I’d love to, but work keeps me busy, so I can’t find the time at the moment and am happy that I can just give the appearance of the blog being alive by posting the occasional short blog post.
