Event details
The Shire of Buckland Cross is honored to continue the tradition begun by Hartshorn-dale would like to extend an invitation to you to our Artisans' Village.  This is a place for all to gather and enjoy the arts and sciences practiced throughout the land.

The Village
Each area of the village will house one category of artisan, such as glass workers, cooks and brewers, fiber artists, metal workers, and many more.  Within each area, all are welcome to come and join their fellow artisans and work on projects in the company of friends.  There will also be classes scheduled throughout the weekend, both in the village areas as well as in a centralized class area.  If you are interested in running or being part of an artisan area or teaching a class, please contact Baroness Jenevra de Carvalhal.

Classes are posted at https://bucklandcross.eastkingdom.org/wp/artisans-village#classes

The Challenge and Display
In addition to the day of demonstrations and hands-on workshops, there are challenges to be given and challenges to be met.  Anyone is welcome to submit a challenge, and all are encouraged to take up the challenges.  In the past we have had a wide array of challenges, with examples such as create a period bow string and create a scroll blank and donate it to the kingdom.  For examples of a previous year's challenges, visit https://sites.google.com/site/artisanscdw/home/challenges-for-2014

Challenges are available at https://bucklandcross.eastkingdom.org/wp/artisans-village#challenges .  We will announce the winners at the start of our feast.
