Being fairly new to the list I have a question. Would these classes be
online? Also I am getting a green house and would like to know from the group
what plants would be good ones to start out with. I do hope to make this pay
off in the future. The dream of working from home and being able to grow tons
of stuff all year long.

I'd like to take a soap class, since my skills in that area are
hodgepodge at best. I'd also like to take a few classes on the science
of alchemy, and get a good grasp on what an apothecary did in period ( I
know what *I* think they did, but that doesn't help from a medieval point
of view!) My husband is doing some research into alchemy right now, but
that class won't be ready for another year or two!
I also need a good grounding in the theory of the humors, and I'd like to
instigate someone into teaching a class about the "wholeness theory" that
most medieval people seemed to have (I'm too tired to explain what I mean
right now - ask me when the in-laws have gone, okay?).
A Huswife class wouldn't be bad, either! Especially contrasted with a
Castellan / Lady of the House class! (Everything that each person would
know if you were living there sort of class. Sounds like fun!)
At some point, Jadwiga, I have to take your classes again - I missed the
garden class, which disgruntled me, and that class where everyone but me
got to play with your scented oils...sigh. (I was the closest person to
deal with two crises, and was severely dehydrated at the time - it was
just a bad luck thing, but I missed out, waaah!)
You know, you could probably apply to get some real ambergris, since
you're doing proper research!

Should you be attending crown tourney for the East on November 3 in Ansonia
CT, I have lined up someone to talk about Alchemy. Fortunatly for me, the
head of my household reciently took on an alchemist :)
Jadwiga has been kind enough to offer a wide selection of classes for the
event. I believe she and I simply have to get together and finalize ?
Should anyone else wish to offer a class or have a specific request please
do not hessitate to speak with me.

- This is something that I need to know about, too. I started keeping a file of bits I found, but so far don't have enough / don't have the time to make a coherent whole of them. A class would be wonderful!
