The Travels of Kvasir: A Viking Schola Event date: September 9th, 2017
Hosted by Shire of Owlsherst - York, PA
Event Last Modified: June 28th, 2017
Event details
Let us speak of Kvasir, wisest of all gods.  He was born from the saliva of the Aesir and Vanir, mingled to seal their truce.  True teacher and knowledge giver, he traveled the whale-road far and wide.  His life-liquid, drained by dwarves, was used to make the Mead of Poetry.  Thus did humanity gain Grimnir’s lip-streams.  This is not his end, however, as he plays a pivotal role in events leading to Ragnarok.

Come forth!  Be you a feeder of ravens or trader of rings.  We meet in Kvasir’s honor to exchange knowledge of the arts, the sciences, war, music, and poetry.  While the overall theme of the event is Viking Era, knowledge and arts from all times and regions are welcome. 
Afterwards, those wishing to stay can share a common meal and participate in the skaldic traditions. 

Dayboard:  The Shire of Owlsherst’s Cooks Guild will supply a standard dayboard for all to enjoy.  Details to be announced.  Anyone with dietary restrictions should please contact the event steward. 

Feast:  After classes and tourneys complete for the day a potluck meal will be laid out.  The Shire will supply a meat main course and bread.  Please bring a dish to share (15-20 servings) if you plan to stay.  (While period or period-like food is preferred, it is not required.) For questions contact the event steward.

Please note:  Anyone with food restrictions please contact the Head Cook.  This is a dry site.

Classes:  Classes will be offered in fiber arts, cooking, a track on Slavic topics, and more to be announced.
