just before the class begins.
Learn the history and basics of pewter alloy casting, in stone

pieces poured in pewter to take home. Tools are provided, but this

What do I make? Garb for a kiddo? Garb for an adult (some scraps
may be large enough)? Largess? A favor for somebody special? It's
really up to you. You may also use a provided pattern for a simple
rag doll and clothing for the same dolly if nothing else inspires
Judging will be done in a total of three categories! Bonus points,
as usual, for donating your creation to largess.

You will be asked to create an illuminated scroll however you

go as you please, but when the clock strikes 3pm on Saturday all
brushes will be put away and the judges will then pick who will
earn the title of Iron Scribe! Feel free to bring books, light
boxes, paints, pens, brushes, and vellum, whatever you think you
may need to complete a scroll.
This can be a team project; up to two scribes/heralds may work on a

An army marches on its stomach, or so the saying goes, and the cook
reigns supreme when the feast table is laid.
Our great College has been besieged, though by brigands or
