Hous Amberherthe

Our Research and Service Unlock'd

Hous Amberherthe was first formed in 1991, by a group of friends who enjoyed going to events and working together. Since then, residents of the household have continued to develop a penchant for creating spectacular clothing, good food and 'high end' events.

Amberherthe is a private household based in the Barony of Southron Gaard, part of the Crescent Isles of Lochac.

This website is a place for us to share what we have learned, through research and practical experience, as well as some sources of inspiration and enthusiasm.
