There will be three hands-on Arts & Science classes being given during the event. A class on masque-making will be taught by Lady Temparia. This is an excellent opportunity to learn masque-making in preparation of the Black and White Ball scheduled to be held at Mists' Fall Investiture. Musicians! Hark! Mistress Keredwin will be teaching harp, so all you harpists, bring them and play. For you percussionists, a class on the playing of the dumbeck. For more information, listen at Court or see Lady Temparia at house Blackheart on site or speak to her via the farspeaker at (phone). -- Lady Temparia.
