We look forward to these yet-to-be-scheduled activities:

  • Countess Elisabeth de Rossignol has been formulating plans on clothing construction.
  • Marquessa Laurellen du Brandevin has been contemplating a satchel class, including both construction and embroidery.

We would sincerely love to host more Arts and Sciences activities in the upcoming months. They do NOT have to be simply ‘classes’. They can be lectures, demonstrations, round tables, interactive discussion. The possibilities are endless. Let me know if you have ideas in mind. I will help you make them a reality.

Reminder: The Baronial Chatelaine, Halldora Bjorn heraldic device for Halldora Bjorn is looking for people from Dragon’s Laire to give short lectures and vignettes on various subjects of the SCA. “I’m basically looking for an extension of what we have on display at June Faire (costume making, cooking info, weaving, spinning, metal work, archery equipment, etc).” She is envisioning 15-min talks, just enough to give new members an introduction. If you are available and willing to give a short presentation, please contact .
