Forge making class and A&S day – Sun 6/11

BrokenBridge will be having our forge-making class on Sunday, June 11th (instead of Saturday, June 10th as previously announced), AND we are also combining it with an open A&S day. This will be held at Brandr’s house in Brooklyn starting at 11am.

During the forge-making class, you will make a propane-powered forge out of an old ammo box. There is a class fee associated with this for those who wish to participate. In addition, there will be some materials that you will have to provide yourself. If you want to participate in the forge-making class, you MUST RSVP BY MAY 10TH to arnorakd [at] gmail [dot] com. If you just want to observe the class and not participate, this will depend entirely on the amount of space available not the day of.

Feel free to join us just to hang out, chat, and work on your own A&S projects!

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.
