Event details

Mimir was the Norse God of Knowledge, and he drank from an enchanted well at the base of Yggdrasil, the World-Tree, to become wise.  So let us also drink from Mimir’s Well!  Join us on Sunday, Feb.  18, for an afternoon of classes and socialization, at the St.  James Episcopal Church in Essex Junction, VT.

New folk are very welcome – if you have questions about how to attend your first event, please contact our Chatelain, Lord Leo, at chatelain@mountainfreehold.eastkingdom.org.

So far we have classes on:  Firestarting, Making Cordage, History of Games, Intro to Card Weaving, Intermediate Chainmail, Cross-Stitch Embroidery, Pad Stitching for Supportive Garments, the Norse in North America, Acid-Etching on Brass, Making Oil Lamps for Your Camp, Making Period Pigments, Making Comfits, the Hedeby Bag, and a Soothsayer's Round Table.  We'll also have an ongoing Games Table, and a separate room for Musicians.  Detailed descriptions and the class schedule can be found here:  https://mountainfreehold.eastkingdom.org/mimirs-well-sun-feb-18-essex-jct-vt/
