Ancestral Remembrance Celebration

July 28, 2017 to July 30, 2017
Myrtle Holt

Grants Pass, OR

Autocrat: Brynhildr Smidsdottir

Join the Incipient Barony of Myrtle Holt, as we celebrate our ancestors with merriment, classes, horses, and tournaments!  
We will be holding our archery, and equestrian championships, as well as our heavy defender tournament!

Check back for classes and schedule!

Myrtle Holt's Osprey (Archery) Championship format: 

It is a moving course. What does this mean? It means that you will be on the move while firing at your target! You can set your own pace, but you must stay mobile!

Myrtle Holt Heavy Defender format:
No shield! Any weapon is ok, as long as it's on your fighter card!

Classes This will be updated, and times will be added to the schedule, when it's ironed out.

  • Exotic Fiber – Basic Facts, Preparation and Use
    Rowan SpiritWalker, OW, JdL, GdS, SG, ASG
    Rowan will be discussing and demonstrating some of the more “exotic” spinning and weaving fibers, including but not limited to several varieties of silk, angora rabbit, llama and alpaca fleece. Topics will include basic information and how to prepare/spin. Bring pencil and paper for notes.
  • Period fire starting with Lord Emir Andar
  • Hat making - Learn to make a bycocket hat
    HL Milisandia filia Willelmi filii Roberti (more info to follow)
  • Storytelling - come learn the art of spinning a great tale from the Summits Bard Lord Iurii Victorev Belogorski!
  • Bead making - Learn to make glass beads - HL Dawnhela Heartsblood
    This class will be more informal, and ongoing throughout the day, so that people can get one on one instruction without feeling that they have missed information.

Activities for the smalls and small at heart: Card stock helms and shields: Get started early as an armorer, or herald, by making and decorating your own helm and shield!
Hobby horse decoration: Maybe you prefer the equestrian fun! Groom your very own wooden steed to your liking!
Period paper doll clothes: Maybe creating beautiful garb is more your style!
