Collegium

I promised to write about Collegium, so here goes. Rosslyn and Camilla, claiming it was for my birthday, convinced two of our guy friends to come to an SCA event. We started out later than we had expected and thus we were unable to go to many classes, but in the classes I did take, I learned quite a bit. We sat through the end of the myth busting class (taking myths people have about the middle ages or what we do, like the weight of swords), and then split up to do various classes. I went to a class about arts and sciences documentation for competitions. Essentially, it's how to prove you did any research at all about whatever you made and talk about the project. It inspired me a bit to do some digging and researching, and perhaps do a knitted item sometime, one with the proper documentation someday.

My next class was on hand sewing. I learned a lot and it needed to be two hours instead of one. I learned I wasn't very good at hand sewing, but could get better with time...and thicker thread, heh. I might have to stick with using hand sewing techniques with a machine, mostly because I'm impatient and hand sewing is time consuming. I did learn that I can do it, which is an improvement! I just don't have the time to devote yet. I cannot wait until I do, which probably will come after college graduation.

That class happened to be the last one I was able to take. Next time, we are aiming to be there much earlier. I did have fun and the guys were slightly bored (the best classes for them would have been earlier in the day, which, by being late, were missed).
