An Evening in the Solar, March 2017

Please join us for our regular 3rd Thursday of the month Arts & Sciences social gathering, “An Evening in the Solar: Pouchapalooza!” Thursday, March 16th, 7-10pm.

We will meet in the usual place, 255 W. 105th St., #21.

The A&S portion of our evening will be an exploration of medieval pouches, including the Anglo-Saxon ring pouch, framed purses such as the Hedeby bag, rectangular drawstring and flapped pouches, the double-ended shoulder-sack, sprang bags and more. Documentation, handouts and recreated samples will be made available.

Fabric, material and supplies will be provided by Lady Godiva D’Mer so we can create a basic rectangular drawstring bag using medieval sewing techniques. Sewing and other skills covered at previous A&S gatherings will be used: whip stitch, blind hemstitch and/or running stitch and fingerloop braiding.

Dinner will be a 14-Century English affair, comprised of Tart in Amber (Onion & Egg Pie) and Gauffres (Cheese Waffles).
