Upton Paggles (Artisan Village)

Upton Paggles was designed as a public arts village where all artists are grouped together to do their art and see just how intertwined the various arts actually are in the life of the medieval person. Artists are invited to come and set up their shop, registering with the person in charge (Helen Schultz/Meisterin Katarina Helene) so that like artists can be put together for a larger impact and support. Space requirements or any other special needs should be mentioned to the person in charge of the Village so that that can be planned out in advance. (Silk workers frown upon working next to the butchers). All arts and artists are welcome.

The village will be open 9am to 6pm on the 6th

Please contact Katarina Helene von Schöenborn if you are interested in being apart of the village.
