The Norse of Myrkfaelinn are pleased to invite you to the Dark Ages Skóla, which will be held on September 23rd, 2017. The Skóla will take place at the First Presbyterian Church of Ithaca, located at 315 N. Cayuga Street, Ithaca, NY 14850. The site will open at 9:00am and close at 6pm. Classes will begin at 10:00am and continue until at least 4:00pm. The site is handicapped accessible and has plenty of parking.
We are anticipating a variety of classes, from Iron Age Clothing, Byzantine Clothing, Celtic Food, Carolingian Military History to Anglo-Saxon Art! If you have a class that you would like to teach, please contact the Class Coordinator, Elska á Fjárfella at susanverberg AT gmail DOT com, and include "Dark Ages" in the subject line. We intend to host a silent auction split between the Dominions' coffers and a Teacher's Travel Fund. There will also be an Arts & Science Display focused on Dark Age era arts and sciences (half page documentation appreciated), to be included in a post-event article.
All Artisans, All Youth Artisans, Hail thee!
The Youth A&S Tournament will be held in the back of the common room. Please drop off your entry and documentation in the morning for display during the day. At the end of the afternoon, before the Silent Auction, please join your entry to show & tell the judges, followed by a most anticipated pick of (donated) gift.
The Dark Age A&S Display will also be held in the back of the common room. Please drop off and display in the morning, to pick up at closing. We would love to see your Dark Age inspired (work-in-progress) projects, but honestly, anything goes :)
