University - the quick recap

So, University. 

Mostly it went very well; the room was a bit too small for us to set up the way we wanted to, but we managed, and the room requirements go on the list for next time.  We transport a hell of a lot of materials, and without the help of lisettelaroux , fabulous apprentice, it would have been a lot more work for Bob.  We did a full day of talking, and I was wiped out by the end of it.

Alas, we got at least one helper, and that's all I'm going to say about it, since this entry is public.  But it wasn't much fun, and though I tried to keep them under control, I hate that the rest of the students had any of their time wasted with that.

But, the classes were well attended, and I think the teaching went pretty well.  It's just such a lot of work that we probably won't do it again for another couple of years.  Most of the students were great, and seemed interested, so hopefully, they had a good time.

I do have cds of the entire class set; they're $6 for the cd, and $2 shipping and handling, so $8 total.  If you want one, please send me an email (elsworthy AT comcast DOT net) and I'll let you know the particulars. 

**** Please put "University Class CD" in the subject line, or I may not see it. ******  Do not send me a message through LJ, I frequently miss them.  Same goes for leaving a comment in my journal.   E-mail only, please.

So, I only recently found your website and LJ; is this a costuming related class?

It's a series of classes that lasted all day on all aspects of building an elizabethan persona. We call it "Elizabethan House".

I have taken your original 'helper' post to heart all these years. In fact, I was reminded of it just recently as I prepare to begin professional photography school. I absolutely will not 'help', and listen as if I've chosen to learn the subject, which I have.

This post of yours, today, reminds me how disruptive it is to the other students as well as the teacher. If I see it happen in my photography classes (starting Thursday night), I'm going to call out the 'helper' on the spot. The teacher may or may not thank me for it, but I'll get my money's worth.

I was sorry to have missed it, I was hoping to come but Emmie's birthday celebrations leaked over into Saturday and I didn't want to bail on everyone to go to University. I have a present for you though that I got at an antique/civil war show they had here in Richmond (it *might* be for a doll house, but you don't have to use it if you don't want to)

Hee! Well, it just so happens that we will be at the house this weekend, from Thursday/Friday through to Monday, and I also have something for Emmie...

If you want to come by, you're more than welcome. Otherwise, we'll see you some other time.

That actually might work for us, if the weather is nice we are planning on going canoeing this weekend, and our favorite stretch of the river is only 15-20 minutes from the farm.

We will call you if it looks like we are going to make it out your way, and maybe we could bring you diner or something.

That sounds lovely! If you make it, I also have something special for you, as a thank you gift. :)

eep, so sorry on the "helper." Man that was one dead-on post about them though.

Sending off the CD information to a friend who is helping to start a 'history-centric' faire out here in the West. Seriously. I mean, a faire...with history. Whodathunkit?

Some of the other students say they would happily testify in a court of law that the "helper" needed kllin', if it had come to that.
