*A&S Classes at Holiday Court of Volodymyr the Great:  January 27, 2024*

10:00 a.m. – til ? *Mini Bardic Madness*

Instructor:  Mistress Scholastica Joycours


Mini Bardic Madness is the opportunity to challenge your creativity with
small challenges. Our first fyt is an insult, or you could say with the
help of a list of common Shakespearian words to create insults. The second
fyt will be to create definitions of obscure words one word at a time. The
final fyt is a mystery. I can't tell you everything, just know that you
don't have to be a bard to come participate, but willing to challenge the
spoken word.

*Instructor*:  Mistress Greer Jonsdottir

*Description*:  "Pysanky- Let's Write an Egg!" Colored eggs have been found
in Ukraine, Poland and even parts of Africa and Asia. The oldest extant
definitive Pysanka egg is from Lviv and dates to the 16th century. Other
dyed eggshell fragments dating back to the the 10th century have been found
in what is now Poland. In Ukraine the most beautiful dyed eggs are made
with a batik like technique called Pysanky. The art of writing Pysanky is
deceptively simple. Using a heated tool, beeswax is applied to an eggshell,
alternating layers of wax and dye to create a pattern which is revealed
when the wax is melted away at the end. Join me in writing beautiful eggs
of our own in celebration of our Barony!
