Learn about this counted canvas technique used in period primarily for pillows, bags and boxes. Kit will include materials to make a small square of one motif which could be used as a favor or scissors fob, using 24 count canvas and silk and linen threads.  In class we will work with one of the simpler patterns, and other patterns will be provided.  Don't be afraid of the word "counted" -- if you can count to 4 you can do this pattern. Class Limit 8. Class Fee $3.00.In this session I hope to help you get a grip on some of the most basic approaches to mastering the scribal arts. Like many art forms practiced in the SCA scribal arts are largely self taught. The internet and books are a great start but working with an experienced artist can get you past a lot of beginner mistakes and understand why you do or do not do certain things.A brief historical overview of early period glass beads and their construction will be provided, after which, attendees will watch the reproduction of a period bead using modern tools. Following this introduction, Aibhilin will teach attendees new to bead making how to make their first glass bead, while more experienced bead makers will have the opportunity to discuss and practice more advanced skills with Lissa.
It is recommended that those wishing to make a bead wear natural fibers and close toed shoes. Older teenagers may make a bead with parental permission and supervision at the discretion of the instructors. Younger teens and children may observe, ask questions, and they will have the opportunity to choose a bead to take home with them.

DescriptionContinued from AboveThe Keepers of Athena's Thimble, the East Kingdom's embroidery guild, has been helping those interested in the fine art of embroidery connect to share knowledge and ideas for over 30 years. We will discuss the basic structure of the guild and its rankings, and hold a short guild panelFrom start to finish, create an original award document blank that can then be painted and used for recognition. We will discuss and handle the tools of the trade while we layout a simple piece. No previous knowledge needed. No fee for the class, Handout $2.00, free if emailed later.A brief overview of the art of Sandcasting with an interactive demo. Including a veritable plethora of anecdotes on the history of metalwork, and whatever else may enter the instructor's ADHD riddled mind.I realized a couple of years ago that there are many people who love to sew, but there are a great deal of bad techniques and doing things the hard way out there.
My aim for the class is to start with some basics, but offer advice for quicker and more accurate stitching, show you some tricks you probably didn't know for getting seams and curves to lay flat, teaching hand made eyelets, buttonholes, button loops, and the buttons to go in them. Sounds simple right? I'm sure there will be plenty of time to get it all in.
What to bring:
largish scraps of linen and wool, thread and needles, tape measure, marking pencil, pins and scissors
a couple each of wooden pony beads, small 1/2 in washers, 1 inch metal or plastic rings, embroidery thread, a little bit of scrap yarn
