Investigating the

Queen's College

The Village of Bristol proudly presents the opening of our own Queen’s College.

Guests of all ages can experience the creation of lost arts such as maille, blackwork stitching, brass rubbing, basket and textile weaving, candle making, calligraphy and more.

Classes and demonstrations will take place throughout the day.

Monumental Brasses are important historical records of clothing and armament styles, genealogy and heraldry, religious symbolism and written expressions of the day. Queen's College is honored to bring back the Monumental Brass that Bill and Ruth Farnham displayed here at Bristol for many years. These brasses are available for rubbings, which are a still a tradition all over England. Come to Queen's College and discover the history and art behind it!

Participate a little; join us for a few minutes and contribute to a community project such as weaving or calligraphy.

…Or a lot! For a nominal fee, our experienced instructors will teach the history and skills of a craft you can take home – your own handmade souvenir!

Queen's College Schedule:

Continuous activities:

Heraldry - Discover your "personal crest" Create a banner that shows the real you.

Calligraphy - Create a written work of art. Fine tune your skills, then add to our "community piece" - a piece to be presented to the Queen!

Brass Rubbing - For varied fees, create a piece of art in the age old style of brass rubbing. Take home art you create, suitable for framing. ($5-15)

Where will the dinner be?  - Location and Web Link

I'm thinking House of Gerhard sounds interesting

Again this can be anywhere as long as the food is good and resonably priced. We have been to BBQ places, Chinese Buffets, Irish Pubs, and Diners.
