For those of more peaceful interests, we offer an extansive array of classes including Spanish Travels, Games at Sea (sorry, no "Walk the Plank"), Astrolabes, Cordials, What they Ate at Sea, Waiting for my Ship to Come In , and How to make Flemish Eyes and other knots.
There will also be a Youth Rapier Workshop (Youth 7-16) as well as an Adult Rapier Class covering the history of the Queen's Blade.
Our MoC, Lady Aveline Frazier, has scheduled numerous activites to keep the young ones occupied including Top Making, Boat Building, Pouch Making and Beginning Embroidery.
**Please note** Our MoC needs 1 or 2 volunteers to assist her during the day. You need not stay all day, but if you can help out in the morning or afternoon she would be most appreciative and might even give you a cookie (Chips Ahoy). Please contact moc (at) smythkepe.org if you can help.
No Smythkepe event would be complete without food.
