Artisans' Village Event date: June 5th, 2015 - June 7th, 2015
Hosted by Shire of Hartshorn-dale - Willow Grove, PA
Event Last Modified: January 9th, 2015
Event details
The Shire of Hartshorn-dale would like to extend an invitation to you to our Artisans' Village.  This is a place for all to gather and enjoy the arts and sciences practiced throughout the land. 
The Village
Each area of the village will house one category of artisan, such as glass workers, cooks and brewers, fiber artists, metal workers, and many more.  Within each area, all are welcome to come and join their fellow artisans and work on projects in the company of friends.  Each area will have a time slot during which the artists get the opportunity to discuss, teach, and demo their crafts to the rest of the attendees.  These times will not overlap, but will happen on both Saturday and Sunday.  This is not to say that this cannot continue throughout the day, but no artist should feel stuck in a single area, unable to leave and learn something new. 
This event is being presented with the support of the East Kingdom University, which will help offset the costs of demonstrating the different arts.  Each area will have a coordinator to help make sure each area has whatever tables and spaces the artisans need.  The coordinator will also help find artisans to participate in the region.  Please feel free to contact the autocrat if you would like to participate in or coordinate an area.  The schedule will be posted on the website, www.hartshorn-dale.org/village before the event.
The Challenge and Display
In addition to the day of demonstrations and hands-on workshops, there are challenges to be given and challenges to be met.  Anyone is welcome to submit a challenge, and all are encouraged to take up the challenges.  In the past we have had a wide array of challenges, with examples such as create a period bow string and create a scroll blank and donate it to the kingdom.  For a complete list of previous years challenges, visit https://sites.google.com/site/artisanscdw/home/challenges-for-2014
The challenges will be posted on the website, www.hartshorn-dale.org/village as they are submitted, so please check back frequently.  Please submit your challenge to the challenge coordinator, Lady Elysabeth Underhill, at laralu@gmail.com by March 31, 2015.  There will be a time allotted in the schedule for those who have issues challenges to get feedback and show off their work, so they will not miss any other parts of the event.

For those interested in camping, there is ample space for tents and light meals on Friday evening and Saturday and Sunday mornings are included in the camping fee.  Please pre-register if you are planning on camping, so the best allotment of space can be determined.
A hearty dayboard will be provided on Saturday and Sunday afternoon for all who attend.  There will be a feast served inside on Saturday evening, which is limited to 80 people so pre-registration is recommended.  There is additional seating available for off-board eating.
Merchants are encouraged to attend, and there is no additional cost.  Please contact the merchant coordinator, Andrew Schickard at andrew.schickard@gmail.com
