3022Metal and Glassworkers’ Symposium in Calo ntir/B3R (St. Louis, Mo) Labor Day Weekend
- Aug 20, 2008As it really is only a 5-6 hour drive down there, I thought some of you might be interested in a really unusual event happening down in the Barony Of Three Rivers in Calontir (St. Louis, MO). I know it is the same time as MKAOD, but just in case there was anyone interested, I thought I would pass on the information. If anyone does decide they want to go, let me know as this use to be my home group, and we are goooood friends with the people hosting it.They have classes, workshops, and demos covering almost anything including metal and glass than you can hit with a Mallet or a Hammer!"There will be in-depth exploration of the medieval metal and glassworking arts, with classes, demos, and hands-on projects that you get to take home with you. Come and join the fun, hit metal, heat glass, and join us all around the bonfire in the evenings!"
