[MER] Diverse Pleasures VII

Join us for a day of classes that emphasize our roots! Remember the days before Paypal and eBay? We are designing our curriculum around learning how to make and do everything we can. Armor, chain maille, clothing, weaving, food, decorations, etc. and learning the history of the time period we enjoy.

Site:
Our Lady of Lourdes
980 Huffman Road, Birmingham, Al 35215

You can reserve a place in any class that has a limited number of slots by requesting it along with a paid pre-registration for the event.

There will be Rapier Regional Fighter Practice inside the gym, and weather permitting heavy fighting and a bocce tourney outdoors. There will be something for everyone.

*** Attention Seneschals and deputies: There will be a seneschal roundtable hosted by Mistress Odindisa Egilsdottir ***
