Event details
Greetings from the Shire of Nordenfjord in Rockland county NY!

We invite you to join us on Saturday 10/26/13 for our Shire’s INAUGURAL event.  This is a truly historical happening as Rockland county NY returns to our roots from the forest from whence it sprouted its first oak. 

NO PRE-REG IS REQUIRED HOWEVER AN RSVP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED SO WE KNOW HOW MUCH FOOD TO PREPARE AND OUR TEACHERS KNOW WHAT MATERIALS TO BRING.

We offer a smorgasbord of beginner/entry level classes.  Please check back here on the EK website periodically for an updated class list.  Gentles interested in teaching please contact Erlan Nordenskald the class scheduler.

SPECIAL OFFERING:  A one of a kind, custom piece of jewelry has been created and will be offered up for sale by auction - a pin rendered in copper and brass entitled "Viking Ship at Sea" featuring a Viking drakkar - the center charge of our Shire device and handmade by our own Gretta Coerfan (Margo Konikoff, a professional jeweler and member of our Shire). 

Own a piece of history.  See it here:
