The archers of the Debatable Lands are in need of some new target stands! The Woodworking Guild has been asked to help out by building a few more new stands, and what better place to do that than at Archery Practice? last week, we succeeded in making 1 new stand! Now that we know what we are doing, we hope to make at least 2 more tomorrow.
We’ll be meeting up at the Washington Boulevard Practice site tomorrow (Sunday, 2019.08.25) at around 11am to take care of that. Bring some hands tools or cordless tools if you have them. We probably need saws, drills, drill bits, wrenches, sanders, clamps, tape measures, pencils, sockets, and the like.
See you tomorrow!
This is just a reminder that the Woodworking Guild will be having a workshop day tomorrow, June 2nd, to complete the banner stands.
Join us at Ishiyama Shonagon’s house from 10am to 2pm for sanding, finishing, and gluing.
Contact Ishiyama via email (woodworking at debatablelands dot org) or by phone (412 596 2204) if you need directions.
It was a bit chillier than expected, and a lot less sunny than hoped for, so we were not able to spread out into the driveway. In spite of the weather, we did manage to get a lot of work done under cover in the garage, much more than one person could have done safely alone, so thanks to everybody who was able to make it. We did a bunch of cutting and shaping to make pieces. Next steps involve cutting joinery onto the pieces, which means a lot of marking of the locations for that joinery first.
The Woodworking Guild’s next planning meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 23rd from 7pm to 9pm at the Panera in Oakland.
The next Woodworking Guild shop day is scheduled for Sunday, June 2nd, but the time and location has yet to be determined.
The Scribes’ Guild announces:
SAVE the date!
There will be a workshop offered at CMU in the Debatable Lands on Sunday, July 10th from 10 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. This workshop will focus on the techniques used in The Book of Hours of Louis of Orleans or what I refer to as the “French Quilt” style- bands in the marginalia filled with acanthus and flowers. Have you wanted to learn how to flat gild, master acanthus and the French flowers and strawberries? This workshop is for you!
I assume everyone’s summer is as busy as mine so I am posting a tidbit so that you may save the date should you wish to participate in this workshop.
For more information email me at MistressAntoinettedelaCroixAT gmail.com (please replace the word AT with @ and leave no blank spaces.
PS: Gladzor Book of Hours is coming your way at Pennsic!
