Rope Sandals: On July 24th, Kagetora will show you how to make your own waraji (Japanese rope sandals) at the BFS Fighter practice. Basic materials will be provided but may be limited, so contact Countess Ylva to reserve a spot!

Beginning Jewelry Making: On Aug 21st, Learn the basics of jewelry making to produce your own two-layer pendant or award medallion. This class focuses on sawing and riveting, and will briefly explore ways to texture or color metals as well.

We will be outdoors at the BFS fighter practice site (5701 Merriam Drive), near the picnic table.  Bring a low stool if you have one. Designs for leather mallet and calon swan medallions will be on hand. If you would like to make something personal, bring a printout of a simple design that will fit in a 2” circle. Contact Countess Ylva (Ylva@lewis-neff.net) to reserve your spot.  If there is enough interest, a second session will be added on August 28.

Do you have an interest in learning  Repoussé (method of decorating metals in which parts of the design are raised in relief from the back or the inside of the article by means of hammers and punches) from Master Grimwulf?  This would be a weekend-long class to be held somewhere in Forgotten Sea or nearby.  Contact Countess Ylva (Ylva@lewis-neff.net) if you want to be on the contact list as we find out if there are enough participants to do this, and then decide exactly when and where it will happen.
