Aurora GillybaryArchitectural Stained Glass 101: Introduction to the Artful Crafte of Leaded Stained GlassThis hands-on class will teach the theory and practice of architectural design considerations when building leaded stained glass lights (windows or panels), a technology which peaked during the Middle Ages during the cathedral-building period. The historic, artistic and technical developments in the science of glass-making in the Knowne World will be explored, including the rise of the medieval ateliers (groups of artists or crafters sharing a workspace), and the rise of the Guild system in Europe. The relationship between art (stained glass) and architecture (masonry buildings) will be considered in terms of how structural forces affect stained glass light (panel) design. Students will emulate a specialized design group within a medieval glass-makers atelier and collectively create a simple cartoon (design) for a leaded stained glass light.

For purposes of the class cotton cord, crochet or Pearle cotton is used and only one needle size but in practice different thicknesses of cords and diameters of needles would have been used.

Baroness TSivia bas Tamara v'AmberviewWhither Goeth the SCA? Looking Forward About the PastMany participants within the SCA are questioning whether it will survive
the next 25 years. If it does, what might it look like? This round table
discussion will feature a brief retrospective about the origin of the SCA
as a "backyard party" and its growing pains as a funny-costume group with
fantasy personas, to its current incarnations as a glorified sports club
or a living history organization. Why is it that so many who joined in
the past are walking away muttering "This is NOT what we imagined"? Comejoin Baroness TSivia (who joined in 1971 as a wide-eyed 14 year old) as we
explore where we came from, who we are now, and where might we sojourn
together in future.

This is the class for you! We will explore different types of pleats and the effects they create in order to apply them to 16th Century German skirts. This class is a recap of experimental styles I have been playing with over the last two years, and an explanation of why I chose those particular methods. It's intended to be hands-on. If you want to play with the different kinds of pleats, please bring a length of fabric, something for a waistband, a needle, and threat. You do not have to be an expert sewer to participate, but the class is designed for those familiar with the artwork of the period.10none2Friday10am-11amFriday 12pm-1pmWest Kingdom Encampment
