Event: Autumn’s Inspirations

EK Event Site Link: http://www.eastkingdom.org/EventDetails.php?eid=2898

With the end of the camping season comes the list of projects to work on during the cooler months, for bettering one’s camp, or one’s garb, or the myriad of accessories and embellishments to apply to one’s SCAdian daily life, etc.  Please join us for a day of classes and workshops aimed toward bringing those projects to life, or to learn new skills and apply to projects that had not yet even been considered!  A dayboard will fuel the hungry artisans, and the event will wind down with a bit of dancing to warm everyone before departing into the brisk autumn weather.

Sign up to teach a class or lead a discussion here! Please have responses in by November 4 to ensure they are included on the printed schedule.

ALL THINGS SCRIBAL

MARCH 9th, 2013
Eliot Baptist Church
912 Harold Dow Highway
Eliot, Maine 03903

We are looking for teachers for ALL THINGS SCRIBAL! We would love teachers
for all levels of classes.

  • Do you want to teach but don’t know what to teach? Contact Honig or Camille and we can tell you what some of the “requested” classes are.  For example, I would like someone who is very good at fixing mistakes to hold a class. Please show scribes how to scrape, dab, cover, fudge and fix those scrolls that need it. Nobody wants to learn how to fix on a scroll that is due in a few days.
  • Do you have a talent for writing words? We would love to know some of your process! How do you make it look so easy?
  • Do you have a little trick you would like to share? We are going to set up stations for the 30 Second Scribal University…for example: I want a refresher on how to use an ames lettering guide but don’t need to sit through the beginning calligraphers class.
  • Would you like to consult on scrolls? Someone may be having trouble with a small part of the process and the nearest scribe lives far away.

To join in the fun, or just ask questions, please email:

Ro Honig von Sommerfeldt at   or   Camille De Jardins  at    We can also be reached over Facebook.
