ARTS & SCIENCES
If you would like to volunteer to teach a class, please contact Dame
Alys Katherine, Elise Fleming, 3950 Walter Road, North Olmstead, OH,
alysk at ix.netcom.com.
Here's what she sent me this week (I talked to her about the sequence of
Beginning Dance classes I'm organizing months ago):
Here's the official "blurb" so you have all the info you need...
Thank you for your interest in teaching a Pennsic class. Pennsic
classes may be on a variety of topics but all should deal with the
medieval or Renaissance world or with the Society for Creative
Anachronism and should represent those cultures and time
periods that had contact with the Western World.
Even if you sent me information on classes for a previous Pennsic,
please send all the information again since I have a new program
and a computer and cannot easily access the old information.
I need the following information:
* Your modern and SCA names;
* the SCA title you prefer used (e.g., Lord/Lady, Mistress...);
* your mailing address;
* telephone number;
* e-mail address;
* kingdom of residence;
* expected date of arrival at Pennsic.
I also need:
* the title of the class;
* a brief description;
* length of class;
* size limit, if any;
* fee, if any, for "consumables";
* fee, if any, for handouts;
* preferred date to teach, if any;
* preferred time of day;
* and any other information I should know such as "Avoid
conflict with field battle", "Need access to firepit/electricity/water",
"Prefer to teach in my camp."
It has been Pennsic tradition not to charge for actual teaching
although you may request a fee to cover expenses of handouts
and materials used. If your fee is for handouts, it will be listed
as (for example) "Fee for handout, $2," but the class itself will
not be listed as costing anything to attend. This means that
some people may choose not to take a handout. You may also
limit the number of handouts that you wish to bring with you.
If your fee is to recover the cost of materials that are needed
during the class (fiber for spinning, fabric for sewing, paints for
illuminating, etc.) then the class will be listed as having a fee to
attend. Please specify what your fee is for when you send me
The deadline for applications is May 1 and are scheduled on a
first-come, first-served basis. Classes begin on Wednesday,
August 9, and end on Friday, August 18. Prior to War Week
classes will be on an abbreviated schedule. From Monday,
August 14, classes will begin at 9 a.m. We will be happy to
schedule classes in the evening, if you wish. Let me know
I will confirm that I received your e-mail request and ask for
clarification if necessary. (Please double-check that you sent
all the information that I need!) As soon as I have all the in-
formation I need I will send you a final confirmation e-mail
post telling you the date and time your class is scheduled and
where it will be located.
You will be expected to check in at the A&S table (located in
the Information Tent in front of Coopers' Store) when you
arrive at Pennsic. If you have any questions please don't hesitate
to contact me.
