Greetings from Quintavia! Once again this year we will be hosting Hrim Schola, the East Kingdom’s premier fiber arts learning event. Last year we had ten tracks of five classes on a wide variety of topics sprinkled with guild meetings, and this year we hope to have even more! The event is on March 23rd in a new site in Clinton, MA.
The overall theme for Hrim Schola is the fiber arts, and we usually have classes on spinning, weaving, dyeing, sewing, embroidery, clothing construction, knitting, and more. Every year we have a featured track that usually includes things other than the fiber arts. This year our focus is on Accessories; this could be hats, belts, shoes, jewelry, stockings, laces, really anything that goes with an outfit – and armor is an outfit, right? We will also continue last year’s popular Youth track, so we will have classes for all ages.
If you are interested in teaching at this event, please contact our Chancellor, Rosina von Schaffhausen. We will have space for messy classes in a commercial kitchen, and if you need a huge space and don’t mind the chill, there’s an unheated gym. The site is only partially handicapped accessible, so please mention if you have accessibility needs, and we will organize the class schedule accordingly.
