Ever wonder where the RUM has gone? Well on November 12, 2011 it will be in
the Barony of Sternfeld. RUM is the Royal University of the Midrealm for
those outside this Draconic Kingdom. It will be held at:
5955 W Hurt Road
Monrovia, IN 46157
The schedule: http://www.midrealm.org/rum/schedule.html
You may have noticed that the schedule says that there is a 3 hour long
scribal workshop. This workshop starts at 1pm and goes until 3:55pm.
The first hour will be a class on Insular Majuscule aka Irish Uncial (the
stuff you see at Irish pubs.) Bring your pens, ink, and maybe some paper.
Class is taught by Ian the Green.
The second hour of the scribal workshop will be dealing with layout and how
to use the "Golden Ratio," to set up your artwork. Don't worry we won't be
doing any math at all. Instead we will be showing you the visual easy way
to work with it. Bring a straight edge that will go from one corner to
opposite corner of a sheet of paper. Class is taught by Mistress Jocelyn of
Lutterworth and Ian the Green.
The last hour of the scribal workshop will be on doing illumination. Bring
some paint and paint brushes tough some may be provided having your own is
always a good idea. Class is taught by Mistress Jocelyn of Lutterworth.
After the workshop in the same room there will be a workshop demonstration
on finishing up parchment. This is being done by the Calf to Codex Project.
When we did the final weekend of the parchment making one skin wasn't
completely finished. So, we will be setting up the skin in its frame and
scraping, pumicing and sanding it down. Workshop being done by Master
Johannes and Ian the Green
Yours In Service,
Lord Ian the Green
