[DRA] Garden of Earthly Delights

Let it be known that from the 21st to 23rd of October, there shall be a Faire to celebrate the arts and artisanal crafts, and this faire shall be held in the Alte Rathaus in the medieval heart of Miltenberg.

The lord Baron and lady Baroness of Knights Crossing welcome all and sundry, but especially those who wish to share their and display their myriad workes.

The Baron and Baroness declare that there shall also be a grand feast held at the appropriate time for such things - the middle of the day. After the day of sharing and learning, there shall be revelry--- games, laughter and dancing in the customary fashion!

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! If you would like to have a booth at the fair, please contact Duchess Fiona, at cindypeterson_mspete at yahoo com.
