Introduction to the Society for Creative Anachronism
Venue or organization:
This Introduction to the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA)* is one of a series of interconnected classes. We will share how we "learn by doing" in the SCA. Turning a piece of leather into a pair of shoes or a piece of armor; making lace to add to a courtly outfit, cooking a grand feast, creating the calligraphy and design for someone's award, and so much more.
Contact Stacy Berg at 7006-951-2437 for more details and check out SCA.org. Then, join us, the 1st Sunday of each month from 7pm to 8pm in the meeting room of the Highland Ave Fire Station, across from Daniel Field. The meeting room on the side and is accessed from Parkway Drive, in the same parking lot as the park.
*The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. is a non-profit, educational group that re-creates the Western European Middle Ages in pre-1600 times. We say "re-create" because instead of re-enacting specific historical events, we choose aspects of pre-1600 life to re-create through the use of a "persona": a character that we create that could have lived in the Middle Ages.
People in the SCA study and re-create martial activities including armored combat, fencing, archery, siege weapons and more. Our artisans research, create and teach music, poetry, cooking, singing, dancing, metalsmithing, tailoring, armoring, etc. Through the hard work of dozens and even hundreds of volunteers, we host events all over the country every weekend.
