Upcoming Solar, June 5 — Olive Oil: From Antiquity to your Kitchen

[Crossposting Berakha bat Mira v’Shlomo’s announcement on the Whyt Whey site.]

Welcome Back to the Saturday Night Solar!

Join Tellina di Giuseppe da Fiesole of the West Kingdom and the Crown Province of Østgarðr on Saturday night, June 5, at 8 PM Eastern time to discuss olive oil!

First we’ll look at olive oil as a ingredient in a modern context, then compare that modern process with how it’s made now with ancient Roman processes as recounted by Cato and Columella two centuries ago.

Tellina di Giuseppe da Fiesole is from the Barony of Rivenoak in the Kingdom of the West. She has a passion for all things Italian, from food to bookkeeping to clothing and beyond. The current major geek it drawing on mundane experience in the olive oil industry to explore olive oil in period.

The Saturday Night Solar occurs every other Saturday night at 8:00 PM ET. The Canton of Whyt Whey in the Crown Province of Østgarðr hosts teachers and topics from all over the Known World so that even when we are apart, we can learn together.

Feb. 13: Whyt Whey Solar: Braies for You and Your Buddies

Please join Whyt Whey with Armiger Caitlin Straquhin as we discuss…. underwear!

Proper undergarments can be the make-or-break item of an excellent outfit! Braies (or breeches or drawers) were a common item found throughout history, and having one (or several) well fitting pairs meant less time laundering and more time enjoying the weather. Learn how to make this deceptively simple garment with a little math, some gusto, and creativity.

Pennsic 101 Class

Oyez, Oyez

Spring has arrived, and the Drums of War begin to Beat. You want to go to Pennsic! Everyone you talk to makes it sound like so much fun…

…but you’ve never done anything like this, so… now what do you do?

Pennsic 101 will be at Hawkes Reache A&S Night this Friday May 27th, 7PM

Pennsic is a most wonderful SCA event and attending this class will help you to both prepare and have the best time possible… We will discuss how to prepare for Pennsic, what you will need to do and bring. We will answer questions you may have on how to manage to get your things to Pennsic and what you can expect when you finally get there and get set up. If you have garb you’ve already made and are not sure it’s Pennsic-ready, bring it. We can help you decide.

If you’re thinking about Pennsic but haven’t quite decided – come on out!
If you haven’t been to Pennsic in several years, or feel like you’re missing out on something because all you do there is (fill in the blank) feel free to join us!

If you took the class at 1066, and still have questions, or just want to hear some of it again, feel free to join us – since this is a question-driven class, it’s a bit different each time.

Please see the Hawkes Reache calendar for location and other info: http://hawkesreache.eastkingdom.org/wordpress/event/monthly-business-meeting-and-as-night-2-2/?instance_id=235

I look forward to seeing you there!

PLEASE NOTE – if you can not make it to the class, I will try to accommodate requests to hold it again. Please email or IM directly.
