Viking-themed Dence Park, Oct 2015 – Mar 2016

Over the next six months we will be focussing on one particular look. We would like for people to be able to get together a well researched set of garb with all of the bits and pieces that go with it. For the next six months we will be looking at doing Viking garb so the adults classes will include;

An over view of Viking garb (Wulfwyne Grimwauld and Alexous Of Uri, two Laurels in this area from Mordenvale will be at Dence Park to help with resources and information)
Making your Garb, inner tunic, outer tunic or apron dress, leg coverings etc
Making your garb look nice- seam treatments adding in bits and pieces, tablet weaving and more.
Pouches and other accessories
Beads and brooches.

We will also have a focus on shoes at some stage. The idea is that by the time Festival comes around next year you will have learned enough to make your Viking garb and learned enough about research and how to do it to apply it to other areas of garb that you may want to look into.

If this new format goes well we will progress from there to a High Middle Ages series of classes for the six months after Festival. If there is still interest after that we will look at Burgundian and Renaissance garb at a later stage. At each stage we will be looking at lots of different techniques not just making clothes.

If you are interested we will be putting out some information soon on what sort of fabric to be looking for as we move into the first of the classes. For the first class run by Wolf and Alexous you may also want to bring along some fabric to pattern with and note pad and pen and your camera for taking photos of resources.

The sets of classes will be starting the weekend after Spring War, 11th of October.

13/9 Dence Park Arts and Science (and Rapier) day

Timetable for 13/9:

———–
Classes are run by members for both adults and children. There are also people to do rapier with.

This is a newcomer-friendly event! This is a day without costumes, so you don’t have to worry about dressing up. There’ll be the opportunity to hang out and ask questions, and plenty of space to bring your own projects, power points and benches for sewing machines. The grounds are quiet and sunny for going outside and doing things like hand sewing in the sun or under a tree.

Time tables will be published about a week prior to each Dence Park day, please keep an eye out so that you know what is happening each month.

There is a break in the middle of the day’s schedule for a Pot Luck lunch.

Alternatively just bring along something to share, it does not have to be a period dish. Remember to bring plates, cutlery, and a cup or mug if you wish to make a hot drink.

From the Baron & Baroness – First Update

Unto the Populace of Rowany do Baroness Ameline and Baron Miles send warmest greetings.

It has been an exciting month! And a busy one. It has been great to see so many of you at events both near and far.

A month ago, we stepped up as Baroness & Baron. This was a wonderful event stewarded by Sigvald and team. We were especially impressed by the delicious repast created by Lady Tatya and her team, created in such difficult conditions. Thank you also to Lady Annabel for her organisation of the Agincourt carol. We were also very pleased to witness the elevation of Mistress Clara van de Maes to the Order of the Laurel.

In the last month we have had two demos, one at the Blacktown Medieval Fair, and more recently, at Supanova. Great thanks to Skarpathan for his organisation of these, and all of those who volunteered their time. We had a great time at the Blacktown demo, and it was good to be able to include Combat Archery in the display for the first time.

We were pleased to accept the kind invitation to attend Dismal Fog’s Panther Hunt event. This was an archery focused event. It was good to see members of our Barony travelling to visit our near neighbours. Special thanks to the Bunny Rabbit, the Dragon & the Panther.

Further afield, we also travelled to Great Northern War. The Northern Reaches as always put on a wonderful event, and we are sure that those others from Rowany who travelled there also enjoyed it as much as we did. Lots of good fighting, good company, and also lots of fire.

Last night we had our first Baronial event within our tenure, the Pheast of the Pheasant in our Canton of Okewaite. It was good to see many travellers from central Rowany & Stowe, and also some guests from Politarchopolis. Thank you to Cristoval for providing such marvelous food – including an item or two for the more adventurous to try. At this event we were pleased to recognise Lady Helouys of Politarchopolis with a Silver Cinquefoil for her work for the Barony, especially in Okewaite; also Lady Bella Rose of Okewaite for work on Flanders costume with Rowan Berries; and also recognising the exemplary courtesy of Baroness Alys Dietsch with the Order of the Dovetail.

In the next month, we will be travelling both to the Stormhold Investiture on the 21st of June, and Midwinter Coronation in Politarchopolis on the 5-6th of July. Closer to home, the College of St Ursula is hosting College War at Glenfield, and also Stowe on the Wowld will be holding their Ludi Natalis Birthday Feast on the 19th of July. We hope to see many of you at these events.

In Rowany’s new monthly A&S Challenge and Display, as organised by Mistress Clara, in the month of June we are looking at both Cooking and also Music – two great categories that we hope to see many members participate in. July will follow with Plants & Herbs, and Textiles & Fibre Arts – so start thinking about what you might like to try for those areas as well.

We are currently working on getting the Barony’s award records into a form that they can be displayed on the website. Please don’t forget to recommend to us those members of the Barony that you feel are worthy of recognition.
