Event details

Brought to you by The Barony of Smoking Rocks and the Regional Metal and Glass Collective. 

In this time of Plague and Solitude we look to our own joys to get us through these times of tumult...however what if you are bored and need something else to pass the hours of the ever colder days? We are here to keep you warm and get you to make all the pretties!

Join The Barony of Smoking Rocks and the Regional Metal and Glass Collective as we bring you a weekend of creative excitement!  We will have a central Live Feed where artisans will be creating various bit of bling as well as some experimental archaeology, teaching you quick how-to's on creating pieces from the comfort of a home studio!  There will also be instructors from around the kingdom joining in from their homesteads with classes and tutorials that will demystify the Metal and Glass arts for everyone to enjoy and discover!
