Crafts fair at the Bethaus

 Last weekend we worked for Volker at a crafts fair he organized. We didn´t get any payment, but a lot of great food and even more fun out of it and a chance to actually play around a bit again;-). A small utility with runes on, reading:

UBARWARI
(I defend against Evil, after an actual find) and
GALD(r)TE(ju)
(I bring magic)

I hit my fingers two times while engraving, so, mind you, the runes are baptized in blood!;-)



 Made this hot punch for Volker. Punch is file steel, handle is iron.
 Daniel had a go at this kitchen knife from a BIG file. Great spiral, one of the first he managed. He´s always getting better, and I like that fact very much.

 We put ourselves to the challenge to make a fire with wet tinder;-) we found in the woods nearby.
We worked with children both days, making handprints in  airdrying clay. Was a bit messy, for we had no tools. So we had to whittle them;-).
Kids were coming continuously, but sparsely, so no stress at all, and we had fun, as had the kids apparently.
Fuzz stick to light a fire with wet tinder;-).
And we got the fire going! Had several tries, though, but we would not go hungry and cold in the woods;-).
Degasing wood on top of the fire.

  1. Sounds like the good time was payment enough! I like the little utility with the runes. Many of mine get baptized in blood too. :) I like Daniel's knife too with that neat little scroll on the end. You guys are an inspiration!

  2. Thanks a lot! I think of doing some stunts with the runes, thinking about some silver plates from the flea market that do not do anything useful at the moment...;-)ummmm.....

Now go on, discuss and rant and push my ego;-). As long as it´s a respectful message, every comment is welcome!
