Come one, come all!  To the Shire of Hartshorn-dale in the Kingdom of the East!  We are excited to welcome you to the Known World A&S Symposium Mar 9-11, 2018 in the East Kingdom outside of Philadelphia.  Please join us in the Guild Hall Friday evening, then for a full day of classes on Saturday.  Concurrently with the classes, we are planning children's activities, an A&S consultation table, and a meet and greet with our guest speakers, which we are truly lucky to have:  Dr.  Gale Owen-Crocker and Robin Netherton.  Saturday evening will include a Ball hosted by Duchessa Diana Alene Tregirtse and the Bhakaili Branslers, a Gaming Room, and an A&S display, with one or two roundtable discussions. 

A sampling of the many exciting classes that have been submitted include Egyptian naalbinding, decorative paper cutting, making brass pins, Florentine underwear, the history of salt, documenting a Spanish feast, an Indian feast, and Irish feast, medieval paintbrush making, Viking havramal, Viking grave finds as a resource, Spanish clothing, applique for armoring surcoat, astrolabes, from underwear to Gutenberg, storytelling and structure, wool prep, needle lace from the Lengberg bras, and the list goes on… We are still seeking teachers and would love to have presenters from other kingdoms, please email alison@kwass2018.org with class submissions.  Please share this post and tell your friends!  We look forward to your good company at this event highlighting the diversity of the gentler arts! 

We are looking forward to a weekend delving into the gentler arts.
