Unsurprisingly I did not get a huge amount of work done at the show while interacting with the public but it is that interaction that is important
when putting on a show.
I did get the Silver intaglios done and the basic layout marked up though.
I posted earlier about leaving one of Britain’s largest Viking Societies because of their attitude about wearing glasses while demonstrating to the public.
Fine craft work like this is just the sort of thing I now require visual support
to achieve and as a result it is the sort of living history that the public rarely gets to see.
The display was hugely popular over the weekend and I spent much of my time explaining how and what I was doing and about the manuscript itself. Exactly the kind of educational display I try to put on.
