Mudthaw is this weekend and I hope to see many of you there! We are hosting an Artisan’s Village from noon to 2:30 and here is the current list of artists participating and what the demos/classes will be:
Elizabet Marshall: Will be demonstrating and teaching the Bayeux Tapestry stitches. She will have with her materials for teaching those familiar with using a needle and thread who are able to concentrate on careful, deliberate stitching. She will also have materials on hand to teach finger loop cording for ages 10 and up. Parents are requested to stay with their children.
Grimbold : Will be demonstrating Cold-working techniques of early metal smiths, including simple Anglo-Saxon cold-forging work in non-ferrous metals, Viking-era Danish decorative stamping and if time permits, ‘opus interrasile’, a rare Roman and Byzantine Empire openwork method. Reproduced tooling, techniques and works all based on period finds and research.
