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.

VANISHED WOOD SEWING GUILD

All interested people are welcome.
NEEDLEWORK/FIBER ARTS NIGHT

Bring a project to work on or the willingness to learn something new.

PERIOD COOKS NIGHT
We're having Period Cooks Night on the 1st Friday of the month in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. There's a different theme each month (So far we have done Roman, Basque, and English from the Richard II era). Some meetings we plan to invite a Guest Chef to come and demonstrate/show us how a certain item is cooked and learn from that experienced person.
Normally, each person attending brings a period recipe (from the theme we've chosen for that month) 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! We comment on them, take notes, and make suggestions on how to improve them.
For more info please contact PeriodCooksNight@...
HERALDS AT HOME
Phebe and Kevin will be hosting heraldry at their home on the last Sunday of each month:
3935 N. Kostner Chi, IL 60641.
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.
