Last year, Ædult Swim welcomed the inclusion of more A&S offerings. This year, the scenery has changed but the sounds of happy artisans will surely ring throughout the hall.

Here is a quick sample of what we have in store:

A&S Saturday Activities 9  a.m. to 4 p.m.*
  • All Day – A&S Play Spaces for all disciplines
  • Lunchtime Class – Documentation and Research, All are invited!
  • *1 to 5 p.m. Scribal Workshop
  • Afternoon Largess Project – Birka-style wire and bead pendants
A&S Sunday Activities 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Space is available, but no specific planned A&S activities (yet)
A&S Martial Classes 
  • Rattan classes (interactive and stationary) held at the far end of the Heavy Fighter Floor. Schedule TBD
  • Rapier classes held on the third floor. Contact Master Illadore de Bedegrayne for more information.

This year, A&S activities will be taking over the first floor. While we have use of the space for both days, coordinated actives will only be running Saturday. We will not have many structured classes but we will be offering bountiful space for A&S Play Time for any and all disciplines.

If you want to be sure there is space for you and your art, contact Lady Margareta. We recommend that everyone plan for the possible chilly temperatures inside and if you wish, bring portable heaters.

We currently have space/interest set for sewing and fiber arts, scribal, and leather work. From 1 to 5 p.m., we will have the Morgan Bible Part 1 Scribal Tour Workshop. In the afternoon there will be a roundtable discussion for brewers. We have some cooks who will be dabbling with the idea of a field kitchen and siege cooking. There will be more on this as we get closer to the event, but if anyone would like to join in the fun, our chefs would love the company and may be calling for food donations. “Stones” for stone soup are always appreciated.

During the Lunch Hour (from 12-1(ish)), we will be opening space for food and a class on documentation and research led by Lady Rosie Dubroc (MKA Susan Holder).

There is a possibility of a group order of pizza; more on that later after quotes have been arranged. There is food for purchase on the second floor for a school fundraiser, and as always, we strongly encourage people to bring coolers and their own food.

Don’t forget to bring snacks!

After the class, there will be space and supplies for those who wish to participate in a largess project (Birka-style wire and bead pendants); items will be donated to the Kingdom of Æthelmearc. Donations of beads, wire, etc. are welcomed and can be dropped off the day of Ædult Swim or interested parties can contact Lady Margareta for drop off prior to the event.
