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 ILThurs. Jan. 25 (moot)Thurs. Feb. 1Thurs.

The Shire of Ravenslake will be hosting an Arts and Sciences Faire and Education Day, in conjunction with Ayerton's Carnivale, on March 24th at Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook, IL. We are hoping to have a wide variety of classes to encourage all members of the society - from non-members to Laurels - to learn something new, as well as improve people's understanding of the AnS side of the SCA. As this is
aimed at all skill levels and interests, including some classes regarding combat, anyone interested in teaching can contact Lady Metylda at metylda@...
(please mention SCA in the subject line).
Our previous AnS Faire had 32 classes ranging from cheese making to riddles. Please help make this one as diverse. We have slots for 42 classes, and would like to have all of them filled.
Once again, the AnS Faire and Education Day, along with Ayerton's Carnivale is scheduled for March 24th at Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook, IL. If
you do not wish to teach, come and take some classes and learn more about the AnS system, or even enter! Or bring your fighting gear as there will be heavy, rapier, thrown, archery, merchants and youth activities taking place at Ayerton's Carnivale.
