Greetings and Salutations:
The Shire of Ravenslake and the Thieves of Hearts are proud to announce that we will be presenting a combined event - the Known World Academy of the Rapier and the Known World Costuming Symposium near Chicago, Illinois from November 9-11, 2012.
Here's a link to our Facebook page:
We will have more information forthcoming, but we have a great roster of teachers for rapier, cut and thrust, and costuming that is only getting better. Please join us for a weekend of fighting and sewing. We are also working out some other activities, such as a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago to look at their collection of period arms and armor and paintings and fiber arts of the period.
PS - if you are interested in teaching, we could definitely use instructors. For the Academy of the Rapier, please contact Anton DuMarais (email@example.com). For the Costuming Symposium, please contact Sara Bailey (firstname.lastname@example.org).
