A few A&S updates
Firstly, there is an extra class being run this weekend. Rachel will be hosting a class at 1pm: Entering A&S Competitions for beginners. Should be a great class for people to learn some of the ropes and get up the confidence to enter.
Secondly, Helouys and Lady Emeline are going to hosting a series of focused dance workshops to get people festival dance ready and working towards their Silver Rondels. The sessions will start on Sunday the 15th of March, go from 12.30 – 2pm, and run for 5 consecutive weeks. These classes are for both beginners and those who need to brush up on their skills. The last session will be the Sunday before Festival so it should be fairly fresh in everyone’s minds and it will be a mini garbed ball so that beginners can get used to dancing in skirts and slippery shoes.I’ve added each of the sessions to the class list below. Remember: dance is lots of fun and great exercise. Come join in!
Don’t forget on Wednesday evening we have a class on Identifying Fabrics and on Friday we have Courtly Graces. Sunday includes brewing with Rurik (please give me a yell if you want to get involved) and A&S competition introduction by Rachel.
Lastly, I need a little help with banners. If anyone can lend a hand hemming on Wednesday or Sunday I would be beyond appreciative.
