The Novice Nine as a Largesse Competition will be broken into two categories, one for Novices (entrants who are practicing their craft for less than a year) and non-novices (everyone else).
There will be a largesse competition in the form of a Novice Nine. Entrants will make nine identical/similar items (i.e. 9 bracelets, pouches, favors, etc.) The winner will receive one of each of the entries and the rest go to the Baronage for largesse.
This class will teach basic stitches on pre-pleated fabric including cable, stem, and wave stitches. Five kits with fabric, floss, and needles will be provided.
Viking travel chests served as chests as well as seats, they also make good tables. This discussion will talk about what makes them unique and sturdy enough to cross the oceans. The boxes discussed are appropriate for 10th century, with an emphasis on Celtics design. For examples see https://spark.adobe.com/page/UxL3fl7LFizuz/

Paint a Silk Fan
There are two size silk fans to paint. The larger size will cost $10.00 and the smaller size $8.00. The class size is limited. In the class I will show you the medieval technique I have been researching to create silk banners. A list of items you will need to produce your own silk item will be discussed in class. Please bring a cartoon (black and white outline) no larger than 8″X8″. In the class we will be working with dyes so there could be a potential for mess.
