Unto the Barony, greetings from Kameshima, head of the Baronial Scribes’ Guild!
First, I would like to thank everyone who attended last Wednesday’s Scriptorium Roundtable. We had several gentles from the Debatable Lands, Sunderoak and Gryffyn’s Keep, and held an excellent discussion of the kinds of things, including specific classes that people would like to see as well as evening organizational formats. We are looking forward to a productive and educational Scriptorium open to one and all.
Second, speaking of Scriptorium: next month’s Scriptorium will be a class on gilding note cards taught by Mistress Antoinette de la Croix. This class will be at a special time and place; for more details, please see the Baronial Scribal Guild page at http://debatablelands.org/activities/scribal.php. Starting in June, we expect to return to our regularly scheduled time and place, 7pm at our
house in the North Hills.
Finally, thank you to everyone in the Barony and surrounding areas who attended yesterday’s Macclesfield Psalter workshop, to Mistress Antoinette for teaching, and of course to Their Majesties for opening up Their lovely home so that students from across the Kingdom could gather to learn calligraphy, illumination and gilding techniques taken from this beautiful 14th c. manuscript.
Scribal activities are alive and well in the Barony, and I look forward to working with everyone who is interested in learning these rich and rewarding arts to help continue making the Æthelmearc College of Scribes the envy of the Known World.
In Honor and Service,
Kameshima Zentarō Umakai
