Commons, Blacksmithing, Brunch, and A&S – Oh my!

The next BrokenBridge commons will be on Sunday, February 26th combined with a potluck brunch, blacksmithing class, and A&S day.

10:30am Doors open
11:30am BrokenBridge Commons
12pm-4pm Outside: Blacksmithing workshop. Inside: Potluck brunch, general A&S, and warmth.

You must RSVP for the Blacksmithing class to arnorakd [at] gmail [dot] com as capacity is severely limited. Include your SCA and mundane names. Priority will be given to BrokenBridge residents and those regularly active in the SCA. You will be expected to bring your own workgloves (thick canvas is good, thick leather is better). This will be held outside in a forge in a garage so dress in layers. Keep in mind that it can start out cold but the forge can get warm since you are playing with fire.
If this goes well, we will plan another Blacksmithing class for later in the year.

Arnora is hosting in Ditmas Park. The address is 273 Argyle Road, 1st floor in Brooklyn. Call 917-297-2356 if you get lost. Take the Q train to Cortelyou road, walk three blocks left, and take a right on Argyle road. Apartment 1. There is a cat and small dog in residence.
