Announcements and activities! There are a good number of people that have activities that I am announcing. Please e-mail me to let me know if the announcements are up to date and current.
** Grey Gargoyles Garb Circle and other A&S
Due to the Winter Break for University of Chicago Campus there will be a Hiatus for the A&S and garb circle. We will begin again on January 7, 2007.
The Shire of Grey Gargoyles is back to hosting the Garb Circle. We have lots of indoor space, tables and plug ins. This is designed to be a place to give you a chance to work on your projects and perhaps even finish them. This is a laid back approach with others there willing to help up but it isn't designed as a teaching experience. Last week there were about 6 people working on projects.
Other Arts and Sciences are MOST welcome to come as well.
Along those lines calligraphy is being brought as well. This too is laid back and about getting your projects done but with someone there willing to help you learn and improve.
Hope to see you there!
** 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.

** Rokkehealden Scriptorium
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 say) is you be active, encouraging, positive to others and yourself.
Place: Oak Brook Library, 600 Oak Brook Rd. , Oak Brook IL
Thusday, Dec. 28 (moot, unless held at the Christmas party as is usually the case)
