For those of you unfamiliar with what a Scriptorium is:
A scriptorium [plural: scriptoria], in the context of the Middle Ages, is a room in a monastery set aside for the copying, writing, or illuminating of manuscripts and records. In the SCA it is where those who are participating in the Scribal arts meet in an informal setting to learn together and share each other’s company.

The class for the Scriptorium on 24 February 2016 will be “Attavanti Made Easy” taught by THL Rachael Daliceaux. The class description is:
Easy shading and design tricks to get those perfect “mirror image” acanthus leaves and jewels to POP off the page. If you can free-hand a few acanthus leaves, draw a circle and can make a thin line with a brush, you already have all the skills you need. Please bring your own paints and brushes, as well as a fine lead mechanical pencil. By the end of the class everyone will produce a scroll blank in the style of the panels found in the artwork of Attavante degli Attavanti.

We have dogs and cats. Please medicate appropriately.

For more information and for directions to my home, please contact me by either replying to this email address (jenn dot strobel at gmail dot com) or by giving me a call/text at [phone number in the dark pages].

I look forward to seeing people there.


Wednesday Scriptorium, Jan 27th

Scriptorium will be held at the home of Meesteress Odrianna van der Brugge in Hampton Township Wednesday, 27 January 2016 at 7:00P and will end at 9:00P. The regular time has changed for the Scriptorium to allow travel time for the teacher.

There is another storm front supposed to move in that day – Odriana will assess the weather that day and if there is a cancellation, she will announce it by 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday. So far it looks like we’re just going to get a dusting, so it’s not likely that this will be cancelled.

Mistress Fredeburg von Katzenellenbogen will be teaching her wood block printing class. There are many ways to make scroll blanks and wood block printing is one. The course description: “European-style blockprinting on fabric and paper using wood blocks. Printed fabric was used for clothing, wall hangings, tablecloths, etc. This hands-on class will focus on historical techniques and include block carving and printing.”

They have dogs and cats. Please medicate appropriately.

For more information and for directions, please contact Odriana by email (jenn.strobel {at} gmail{dot}com) or by giving a call/text at her mobile number (in the Dark Pages).
