Miscellaneous, Nalbinding

Finland and N.E.S.A.T.

Goodness.  A lot has happened in the last few months.  

Back in May I submitted an abstract to demonstrate a craft at the North European Symposium for Archaeological Textiles (N.E.S.A.T.).  I never thought I would be selected to present.  In August I received word that my demonstration on “Nalbinding with Non-wool Fibers” had been selected.  Thus, I am now making preparations to make my way to Oulu, Finland the third week of May in 2020.

To say I am nervous is a huge understatement.  This will be my first Academic conference outside of teaching classes and giving lectures within the Society for Creative Anachronism.  I am normally frightened of public speaking.  I seem to have no problem teaching a class, however.  Someone pointed out the reason for that is in teaching the class I am participating in an interactive session, whereas, with public speaking the interaction is more one sided.

In addition to my posts for tutorials and research I would like to “chronicle” my preparations for the conference.
