Do you like building things? Working with your hands? Puttering about on projects like woodworking, or blacksmithing or building a ballista? If so, the Dun Or Tinkerer's Guild is the place for you! We'll be here to talk and tinker you through your own individual projects, as well as working together on some bigger projects for our Barony, and along the way, we may learn a little bit about how they did it all in period, and explore a few science/engineering topics, such as astronomy, etc.. Please join us for our first meeting, where we'll be brainstorming about our first project, the Baronial Towers! Bring a drink, your ideas, and maybe a snack to share-, we may order pizza in the evening, if the tummies get growly!
