[DRA] Garden of Earthly Delights

Let it be known that from the sixteenth to the eighteenth of April, there shall be a Faire to celebrate the arts and artisanal crafts, and this faire shall be held in the lord baron's holding known as Castle Tannenberg. The lord Baron shall be there to welcome all and sundry to this demesne, but especially those who wish to share their and display their myriad workes.

After the day of sharing and learning, there shall be revelry--- games, laughter and dancing in the customary fashion! The lord Alexander declares that there shall also be a feast and that all who wish to participate bring some edible bounty to share with all, that we may have an even grander feast. Said festivities shall begin near the middle of the day, that all may have time to make the journey, and of course guests are welcome to slumber in the Great Hall should they have imbibed too much wine or should it become too late to make the journey home!

Details: Faire: This is a day to display your works, whether finished or not, to share your knowledge. We are not only looking for perfection --- we want beginner level work, all the way to master works! No competition, only sharing and learning. Artisans will sit with their projects, working on an unfinished one, etc., and people can admire, examine, inquire about them, etc. (Artisans may also, of course, go and examine other people's work and try new skills). If a spontaneous class breaks out, wonderful!
