As the weather turns cooler, we turn away from the chilly outdoors and pursue the past-times best suited for winter months: creative endeavors of crafting and learning, and the camaraderie of the feasting hall. Join us for a day in which we indulge in the pleasures of both mind and body! Learn a new craft, hone your skills, share your knowledge, and end the day breaking bread in the company of your friends.
