The scriptorium at University was once more a wonderful treat for me: it was in a small hall on its own, and the space was dedicated to C&I for the whole event.
Lady Melisende (now companion of the Lindquistringe, huzzah!) taught a class there through the morning. I didn't hear her teach, but I saw she provided an excellent 'package of inspiration' in the form of exemplars from online sources, for people to take home, to jump-start their scribal library.
It was a pleasure to come in mid-morning and find a half-dozen people, heads down, working industriously on their pieces. You could feel the fizz of creativity and industry in the air. A couple came back in the afternoon to finish their work.
Thank you those people who worked to make this space happen on the weekend at University:
- Lady Ailitha, Chancellor, for agreeing to it, and setting aside the space all day for it
- Lady Trinite, Signet, for bringing her many tools and supplies to share
- HG Nerissa and Lady Gabrielle, who sat in on classes, puttered, and offered advice and feedback through the day
One great treat on Sunday morning was looking through the backlog box. This is the collection of finished scrolls that need homes, where the current whereabouts of the recipient is uncertain.
Happily, HG Allessandre Melusine was able to put names/addresses to a dozen scrolls, and I know of two others, so just by showing this beautiful 'gallery' of finished work, Trinite was able to find homes for over a dozen scrolls. Well done!
I'm hoping this impromptu gallery is displayed again, perhaps outside ID, so other longtime members might be able to help find homes for these glorious works. Someone (many someones!) earned these scrolls, many scribes worked on them - they deserve to be reunited.
Again - thanks to everyone who helped run this scriptorium. I'll happily attend and pitch in on future ones at coming events.
