We LOVE our Arts and Sciences Day Camps here in Dragon's Laire. We have one every 6 months or so in both Autumn and Spring, so they nicely bracket the fighting and camping season.
There are usually many types of activities at the Arts and Sciences Day Camp, ranging from classes to hands on teaching to illumination and calligraphy to cooking to weaving and spinning to sewing to... whatever you want. Let our A&S Minister know and she will do her best to make it happen!
Please Join us at our Next A&S Day Camp!
From our Arts and Sciences Minister:
Thank you to all who attended the DL Spring A&S Day Camp this past Saturday. The VFW Hall was busy, and full of folks in full geek-out mode. Thank you to all of the teachers who offered classes: HE Mrq. Laurellen, HL Rycheza, Lord Diomedes, and HL Loric. Thank you also to HL Kassandra for the lovely lace display.
Their Excellencies send this missive:
We wanted to thank Dame Madrun for organizing the A&S Day Camp. It was well-attended, even though it was accidently scheduled against Celtic Bardic (which we definitely regret!). But even so we found the day to be fulfilling and inspirational. Many thanks to all who participated in any fashion.
Some special notes of gratitude we wanted to pass on in addition to those mentioned by Dame Madrun:
Many thanks to the Scribal Community for demonstrating your talents in the painting of charters and the creation of new scrolls. We were impressed by the display. Thank you Lady Ela, Your Ladyship Gabrielle, Your Lordship Renart and those who traveled to our fair lands from Madrone and Aquaterra to demonstrate your talents to us.
Many thanks to Master Cedric for his enthusiastic display of metal working in jewelry. He was surrounded all day long and his good-nature and passion for what he does definitely shown forth. Also, many thanks to him for being a sport in showing the versatility of early period garments (by modeling them) at the request of Her Excellency. Truly a chivalric display worthy of a Sargent of Dragon’s Laire. Thank You, Master Cedric.
Thank you to M’Lady Diana of Kent for the gift of additional largesse. It is the gifting of largesse that shows our talent and generosity as a group to the Knowne Worlde. Thank you also for displaying your talent throughout the day.
If you did not at least sample the culinary arts of THL Rycheza yesterday, you missed out. Based off of period recipes I could have happily eaten everything she brought with her. Definitely a culinary artist!
Many thanks to THL Kassandra for her display of lacework, and for all of her help in cleaning up and clearing the VFW Hall at the end of the day. That assistance was definitely appreciated.
Many thanks to Lady Adena, Lady Anya and their posse for all of their work in organizing and cataloging Gold Key. The care and management of Baronial-owned garb is definitely at a high point in our history.
I greatly enjoyed the Tablet Weaving class taught by Dame Madrun. I gained knowledge I did not previously have and was inspired to do more on my own. Everyone in the class seemed to enjoy it as well. Thank you for your efforts in this.
We were on site for a full eight hours plus, but it seemed to go by in a flash. And it achieved the goal of what these A&S Days are all about – inspiring passion to learn the arts and sciences of the time periods of the SCA. As well as the family of Dragon’s Laire coming together in fellowship to support each other in our learning. Dragon’s Laire is truly a magical place for our willingness to do these things. Thank you again for all of you who took part.
Hear the Roar of the Dragon! Mightiest Guardian of the Crown of An Tir!
