The 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 se) is you be active, encouraging, positive to others and yourself.

Everyone brings a period recipe and the ingredients to cook the dish, but we all get together and cook it together and then we sample all the dishes that night together!

All area heralds, and any clients who wish to attend are welcome. Heraldic services for name and device researches will be available at this "one stop". Exact time in each afternoon to follow soon.
GREY GARGOYLES/AYRETON A&S AFTERNOONS
For the past several months, we've had a growing number of people showing up at Ayreton combined fighter practice on Sundays at Ida Noyes to do casual A&S, gab, et cetera. We hope to begin introducing some beginners tutorials in various arts
and sciences during these meets soon, and I think many of these will be
of great interest to the Ayreton populace as a whole. Timing coincides with the Ayreton fighter practices.
The Cryer can be contacted at AyretonTowneCryer@...If you wish to be taken off of the announcement please send an e-mail to the AyretonTowneCryer@... and put in the body that you are requesting to be removed from the announcement list.
Sorry for any disappointment that may ensue but I have to put Leatherwork Night on Hiatus. Summer grad class has a brutal pace for a month so I’ll let you know when we can start up again. Thanks.
