[CAL] Calontir Metal and Glassworkers' Symposium

Welcome to the second Calontir Metal and Glassworkers' Symposium! This event is something special in Calontir: an event dedicated wholly to in-depth, hands-on study of medieval metal and glass work. Here, you can immerse yourself in the work and learn things which can't be taught in a short class, and take something home with you. Teachers have a venue for those projects which just can't fit into most other events. For the craftsmen and women of Calontir, this event is for you.

This year, we are dedicating the Symposium to the medieval treatise, On Divers Arts, by the pseudonymous Theophilus. On Divers Arts is the premier medieval metal and glass working treatise, and we invite you to share in our exploration of it. This and other metal and glass working treatises can be found for sale online with Potboiler Press, one of our local Calontir booksellers.

We are still eagerly seeking more classes and teachers! If you have a metal or glassworking class you would like to offer, check out the Teachers Info. Is your group interested in running an Inn for fund-raising? If so, contact the event steward. Inn slots are first-come, first-claimed.
