>Greetings to the Scribes of the Known World
>This is a first information about a 5 day Scriptorium event coming up in
>October. The Drachenwald Signet Clerk, Lady Signe Sigurdsdotter, email:
>anna@..., asked me to forward it to you.
>"I will also take this opportunity to let you know that there will be a
>Drachenwald Scriptorium in Uppsala (Aros) the 14-18 of October 2002. A
>site is booked, and some teachers, and visits to Uppsala University
>Library and Royal Library of Stockolm will be organized. The subjects for
>the classes are so far: distribution in making a scroll, different
>calligraphy from different time periods, how to apply gold leaf and making
>a quill pen. The price for the course including full board, teaching and
>excurtions will be maximum 2500 SEK, approx. 220 US $."
>Last year's scriptorium in England with visits to the Fitzwilliam Museum
>and the British Library proved so successfull and fun that the scribes in
>Aros are planning a similar event in the Principality of Nordmark
>(Sweden). Stockholm's Arlanda airport is located conveniently for travel
>to both Uppsala and Stockholm and has good public transportation as
>well. Not to mention all the wonderfull museums in both towns ....
>Updates will follow once more details get finalized.
