Arts and Sciences

Fighting is not the only activity offered in the SCA, although it's the most visible. Arts and Sciences (A&S) encompasses everything having to do with day-to-day life in the Middle Ages.

Through study and research, we attempt to re-create various medieval crafts, skills, and past times such as: period costume (garb), weaving, dancing, drumming, string making, manuscript calligraphy and illumination, leather-working, armor making, cooking, herbalism, period pigment, stone carving, coin making, arrow and bow making, etc. That list is limited only by your imagination and interest.

Our Shire has regular workshops for teaching and helping with several aspects in A&S. If there is a subject on which you would like to see a workshop done, please contact the our A&S Officer (visit the Contact page for inquiry).
