Class: Behind the String: The Longbow Location: Archery range Instructor: Úlfr Rauðskegg (Dearg) Times: 11:00 and 2:00. Duration: 30 min. Description: This class is geared toward novice shooters, but more advanced archers are welcome. I will discuss some tips on how to pick the right longbow type, size and weight for the shooter, and some best-practice behaviors that are good to adopt as you are learning how to shoot the longbow.
I look forward to seeing all of you there!
Class Name: The Medieval Woman's Hatbox - 11:00 to 12:00
Instructor: THL Edyth Miller
Description: There are five medieval headdresses that could easily take the prize for the most essential headdress a medieval woman could have. The time periods vary for each, though some span several centuries, and all are important items to know about. Please note, however, that very early and very late styles fall outside of the focus of this class (but you should still attend!) If you've been looking for a go-to headdress, this class is for you! We'll look at each style in period, and I'll show some of my recreations to assist with discussions about construction techniques. Notes will be also provided.
Class Name: Sewing Garb By Hand - 2:00 to 4:00
Instructor: THL Edyth Miller
Description: Even if you don't consider yourself a seamstress, the skills required to hand-sew your garb are a lot simpler that you might believe! From simple stitches for holding pieces together, to eyelet and buttonholes, to making buttons out of fabric, and even making your own laces, this class covers the basic toolkit of the medieval sewer. Even if you use a sewing machine, the techniques discussed in this class will provide you with everything you need to polish off your garments in the most medieval way. I'll have various materials on-hand for you to try the techniques.
