Introduction

After years of thinking "that might be fun" Jenevra and family joined the SCA in 2008. Proud members of the House of the Silver Scorpion.

I am keen on my art of bookbinding. Please see my ongoing blog for examples of my work and research. Jenevra's Blog.

Mundanely known as Christine Connors. Christine's husband Matt Connors is known in the Society as Fearghus O'Conchobhair.

Classes

Jenevra, as she prefers to be called, is happy to teach the following classes:

  • Bookbinding
  • Papermaking
  • Essential Oils
  • Herbalism
  • Lucet Basics
  • The Organization of Knowledge in Period


Court Will / In Case of Peerage

  • My husband Fearghus O'Conchobhair has my ICOP letter. As to Court, I don't mind being surprised but it's really hard to do that. I pick up on people's behaviors and then start guessing. And fretting. Morning and roving courts are best for surprises! Writs are good too!
  • I LOVE the scrolls I have been gifted - so grateful to the artists! I would just a little bit like one with some goldwork on it, or one that is more like a book of hours illumination - the styles I have are in other traditions.

More Information

Some of these are likely outdated - I promise to clean them up!
