I’ve signed up to teach at Pennsic! I’m pretty excited, and nervous because it is my first time teaching or doing anything A&S related there. I’m really looking forward to it!
I will be teaching a Champleve enamel class and a lecture about the Venetian Arsenale. The enamel class will be fairly technical and is going to focus on how to reproduce medieval Champleve enamel (or enameling in a medieval style) using modern techniques. It should be pretty fun! The Venetian Arsenale class will also likely be fun. I did some research for a class I took last Fall so I wanted to share the knowledge with others. I focused on the Arsenale and I think it’s an interesting topic to learn about. The Venetian shipbuilding facility was world renowned, and truly a large part of Venice’s power.
Hope to see you there!
