Greetings, gentles all!
The A&S open house for Tanwayour will be held this coming Tuesday, Dec 16th, from 5-8 p.m. at the Rancho San Diego Library, 11555 Via Rancho San Diego, El Cajon, CA 92019. Please come and enjoy a wonderful time to enjoy, work on, and share your period arts!
Lady Jana Aoibeall will be available to teach one-on-one how to do period shading techniques to any who wish to learn how to make your illuminating (the painting used to illustrate awards scrolls in our society and very expensive books in period) even more spectacular. She can also demonstrate gilding techniques (how thin sheets of gold were applied to the illuminations). Card stock will be available for those who wish to practice by making gift cards/tags.
Also, Lady Agnes Wurtmann will be demonstrating how to make Sima, a Finnish mead that can ferment in as little as 8 days. If you wish to try your hand at making your own, please bring 2 lbs of honey and a clean 1 gallon jug.
Other gentles have come and worked on cordmaking, and cutting out sewing projects. We have a beautiful large, well lighted room where you can put two banquet-size tables together for your project, if you need the room, or you can work out of your lap. As long as it’s period and you can do it on/over a carpeted floor without risking stains, you are very welcome indeed!
Hope that we’ll see you there!
Robyn, Tanwayour A&S
