Other Group Gatherings


Archery Bracers Class

Alric the Indecisive will be teaching a class on making archery braces at fight practice. The date of this class is to be determined. This is an all ages class (10 and over with parental permission) at an introductory level. The lesson will include tooling leather and possibly dying and painting it; with each student finishing a personalized bracer. This class will likely take more than one session. Time will vary on each bracer's design, with simple ones taking one night while more detailed ones will likely take longer. Cost of the class is $15 dollars. For pre-registration and questions contact Alric the Indecisive.

*If you wish to learn leather work but do not wish to make a bracer, contact Alric to discuss an alternative project.


Medieval Dance Practice

There will be a dance practice lead by Mistress Fabianne on the 4th Tuesday of May, May 23 and then these will be suspended for the summer. Some new dances are taught every month, so beginners and experienced dancers are welcome! The practices are at the Fencing Club in a designated area beginning at 7 PM.


Fibre Arts

Many people bring fibre arts projects to the Tuesday night gatherings to work on. Anyone is welcome who has an interest in the fibre arts.
