Fiber and Foliage
September 12, 2015
College of Yarnvid
Fiber and Foliage and Forging! An Artisan's Row Event.
Special guests this year- the Central Virginia Blacksmith Guild!
Almost all disciplines need fiber (for clothes if nothing else!), wood or plant material, and metal- and this year we have all three!
Come exchange knowledge and skills with fellow enthusiasts. Whether it's casting, bladesmithing, armoring, spinning, weaving, knitting, braiding, herbcraft, gardening, basketry, dyeing, baking, or anything else related to Fiber or Foliage or Forging (to include any kind of metalwork), you will find kindred spirits, learn new techniques, and even might look at an old craft in a new way!
If you do anything with Fiber or Foliage or Forging, come on out, bring your tools and supplies, and enjoy a full day of free-form camaraderie.
If you are interested in any of this, please come! You don't have to already be an artisan- we are happy to teach and to entice you in to our world...
Arts & Sciences Activities: The whole day is devoted to Arts& Sciences, in an Artisan's Row format. There are no specific classes, thus you don't have to worry about the things you're most interested in all happening at the same time.

Other Information: We will have 2 large halls within the church, and a few smaller rooms so that we can group related interests. There is a well-appointed kitchen we can use for food-grade substances. The Central Virginia Blacksmith Guild is bringing several kinds of forges, which will be set up on the lawn. We will also have a large pavilion outside to accommodate natural dyeing, soapmaking, and other activities too smelly or messy to be done indoors. The church's parking lot is not large, but there is street parking along the sides and front of the church. There will be a few spaces reserved as a loading/unloading zone near the doors.
