Arts and Sciences- Plague Projects

There will be an Arts and Sciences People’s Choice Competition during the day, bring your project, finished or in-progress that you have worked on during quarantine and enter.

Come and see what others are working on and cast your votes!

Plagues are a nuisance, but we had a little more time to create and try things!

There will be a class on making Medieval finger-looping trim~

There will be a class to learn basic hand-sewing techniques creating a  small drawstring pouch to hold your ducats.

The times will be on the schedule on the day of the War. The classes are free to all.

We will be there all day at the Competition shelter holding an open workshop on needlework and sewing. Come and investigate sewing or trim making techniques. 

Drop in and stay as long or little as you like. Bring your project or questions, learn or pass on tips and techniques.

The focus will be mainly on trim, but everyone and any project is welcome.
