Canticles is celebrating its 2nd year as a premier Subscription-Based Production Company. Releasing new literature, music, art and media in a singular and unique High-Fantasy Universe, Canticles brings its viewers and subscribers into a world you've never seen before, alongside lovable characters and a mythology extending four-thousand years.
At MuseCon this year, Matthew R.R. Morrese, Creator of Canticles, is running an entire track tailored to World-Building in a High-Fantasy setting. While the panels create a cohesive lesson plan if you attend them all, each panel can be taken as a singular educational experience if you think you just need a little help developing one aspect of your world. Come join us for help in origination, character development, location creation, and so much more!
The Muse Salon - Marlborough Room
Welcome to the Muse Salon! From fiber to traditional art, jewelry making, and just about anything else you can imagine, it'll be here in Marlborough. The center of the Salon features an open format "come as you are" setup where you can grab a chair & knit, sketch, braid, etc., while hanging out with fellow creators and crafters.
We'll also have a variety of equipment and technique demonstrations going on, including spinning, calligraphy, chain maile, and costume repair. And as a backdrop to this dynamic environment, we will be featuring displays of completed projects from both the Muses as well our guests and attendees.
Which includes you! If you've made something in one of our sessions that you'd like to share & show, bring it to our Muse Salon and display your work for all to see. There are no reservations required, but display space is somewhat limited so will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Yes, our Salon also features display space! While our priority is to display at-Con created items & session examples we do have some space available for previously created items from our guests & attendees. Please send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org with details of size, piece count, and any spacial needs your Creations may have.
The Muse Salon will be open:
3:00 pm - 9:00 pm Friday
9:00 am - 9:00 pm Saturday
9:00 am - 2:00 pm Sunday.
(note: all displays must be picked up by 3:00 pm Sunday afternoon)
Our Workshop - Stanford Room
Solder, heat, creation! Stanford is the place to work on projects in stained glass and build blinkies. What's a blinkie, you ask? Why, those cool badges made of circuit boards and LEDs. There's a free beginner blinkie building session in our Workshop from 9:00 - 11:45 am Saturday morning, featuring the Atomic MuseCon blinkie, and the room will be open for general blinkie construction throughout the convention.
Additionally our Workshop has stained glass kits in a variety of skill levels and sizes. Techs will be available most of the weekend to guide you through all the steps needed to turn your kit into a wonderful piece of art.
Want a break from the soldering iron? We also have several wood kits available for assembly here. Past projects have included mini-catapults, bird houses, and bat houses (great for mosquito discouragement!).
Note: Due to the extensive use of solder and flux in this space food and open beverages are not allowed in the Workshop. People with sensitivities are advised to take the solder use into consideration before entering this room.
