Fun things to do in Ayreton
SUNDAYS** Grey Gargoyles Garb CircleThe Garb Circle is a continuing venture now. PLEASE bring any garb project you would like to work on. There will be plenty of tables and chairs available and plug ins for your sewing machines! Come and Garb with us!This is designed to be a low key way for people to work on their sewing projects and to learn from each other. It is NOT designed to be a formal instructional occurance. However, anyone who needs help or wants to start learning how to make garb is more than welcome!Of course other Arts and Sciences projects are welcome to come and share the copious amount of indoor air conditioned space on Sundays as well._______________________________________________________________________MONDAYS** Tree Girt Sea - Consort Music
Monday nights from 7:30 to 9 at Robyyan and Fern's 2506 W Morse Ave. Any instrument is welcome, recorders can be borrowed, and Robyyan is willing to teach. Absolute beginners please call first, as some sight reading ability is necessary - this can also be taught. Please call 773-764-1920 to confirm.___________________________________________________________________TUESDAYS** Calligraphy and IlluminationNo practice this week. There will be practice on August 22 and August 29th.___________________________________________________________________WEDNESDAYS** Heraldry Night Heraldry at Thorvold's is cancelled for the month of August. Thorvold has said that it will start back up again in September with dates to be announced.** Vanished Woods Project Night.We are hosting a Project Night every Wednesday Night. Bring your sewing, bring your chainmail rings, bring your illumination project or any other project! We have space, we have sturdy tables, we have fun! We have a sewing machine to loan. We also tend to have rather interesting discussions. This is a laid back evening intended to encourage ALL A&S projects (that can be worked on in our home - sorry, we can't encourage welding). We are not experts, but we are great cheerleaders! This is a great opportunity to set aside time to work on those things that you want to get done but are having trouble with in terms of motivation and/or setting aside time. If you are looking for a project to start, we even might have the resources to get you started.
Directions are posted on the Yahoo Ayreton calendar. Children are welcome - we have two little ones who love to play. Our cat and two small dogs will be sequestered.

Call 312-259-6688 for more information.** Rokkehealden ScriptoriumThe Scriptorium is composed of all skill levels. The Scriptorium is open to anyone who is interested in any aspect of the scribal arts. You do NOT have to be a member of the shire to participate in the Scriptorium. You don't have to be an artist. You don't have to paint. You don't have to draw. You don't even have to do calligraphy. Experiment and do what you like. You don't have to buy anything. We are a friendly group and share our supplies. Of course, if you get hooked like we did, you'll want to get your own supplies. From time to time we hold classes to teach various aspects of calligraphy and illumination. About the only request (per say) is you be active, encouraging, positive to others and yourself.Place: Oak Brook Library, 600 Oak Brook Rd. , Oak Brook IL
