Scribal Open House Sunday 1pm

Reminder that this Sunday is a scribal at Alamanda’s beginning at 1pm.

The Wyewood scroll case has been most happily depleted and needs help from all skill levels to replenish.  Also, I will have Kingdom Charters that Their Majesties of An Tir need right away.  If you are new and want to try illuminating for the first time I have notecard designs that you can enjoy painting and practice color and brush skills on.  Or come for company and look through my library of books for scribal arts, costuming, tablet weaving, and many other areas of the medieval crafts we enjoy practicing.

Please email, call or text me at 425 306 6224 for address and directions.

Arts Unframed Staff Needed

Greetings Wyewood,

In order to prepare my event proposal for Arts Unframed 2017, I need to have some basic event staff in place.   Please let me know if you can fill any of the following positions:

Gate Manager – Arranges staffing of gate, brings appropriate seed money and paperwork, makes sure paper work is completed correctly and that gate monies come out correctly at the end.

Lunch Coordinator – Plans a lunch menu and arranges for preparation and service of lunch.

Deputy Event Steward – Various support tasks such as preparing Crier copy, creating and disseminating  electronic and hardcopy advertisement, arranging for storage materials to come on site and return appropriately, and arranging for event staff (other than lunch and gate) as needed.  I consider this a necessary position as I am strongly considering going back to school next year and will need the support, and this is the last year I will run the event so this is an excellent opportunity for someone to learn it.

Please respond if you are interested in any of these, or if you have questions about these positions!
