On  16 October 2013, Mistress Tyghra will be running her class on “How to Reproduce Medieval Jewellery” also at the Scout Hall.  The class will start from 6.30pm.  You are invited to research a piece you would like to reproduce and bring that information along.

In the near future, Sir Ysambart will be teaching his incredibly useful chest making class. A spinning class is also being organised. Stay tuned for further information.

All confirmed classes are now listed on the Baronial calendar, available on the website.

Keep making shiny things!
