At events like this, we try to fan the flames of curiosity and creativity. One curious and knowledgeable person who would have helped us is Isabeau d’Orleans. Isabeau was a talented and skilled craftsperson who embroidered, cooked, made beautiful music, and supported our Barony for many years. Isabeau lost her yearslong battle with cancer on January 21. This event celebrates her spirit, and we encourage you to remember her with us by learning new skills and making beautiful things.
This event is now sold out!
