Buona sera, (good evening)


Great and venerated gentles of Ansteorra, there are several workshops that will be offered at the Laurels Field Day, within the magnificent lands of the Barony of Namron.  The workshops are not limited to the usual classroom structure.  Almost all workshops are all day, during which the instructors will be available with their knowledge and equipment. These masters will instruct and demonstrate their expertise. The number of people, who participate, will directly affect the possibility of a, hands on lesson.  This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a Laurel in many different areas of expertise.

Painted Wallhangings with Mistress Stacia and the Beginning Nalbinding with Mistress Alix, will both be at the student union.The metal workers will be at the park.This includes Forge Craft with Master Tarl, Structural Soldering with Master Beorhtlic, and Pierced Metal Work with Master Aethelstan.

Please let me know if you have any questions about one of these fabulous workshops.

Lo when considering the incredible amount of skill and knowledge at the workshops let us not good gentles forget that there are many classes that one would almost do something scandalous to make sure to attend as many as possible. Below is the schedule for those who have somehow managed to have not seen it yet.
