Dream. Learn. Create.

So much to do, so little time, so much more to squeeze into the schedule. Whether it is cooking crafts and sciences, or hands on costuming or woodworking, if we can't teach you how to do something we can work to point you toward a teacher who can.

Knowledge exchange in the SCA has the unique quality of being Free!
In most cases...

Most will give of their time and resources freely to help get you on your feet. If you want someone to do it for you, your patronage is welcome and most will work out barter or a fair cost for their talents.

But if you're looking to become an artist in the craft yourself, or even just to dabble a bit in something that seems interesting, you've come to the right place.

There are instances where a craft or activity is not taught as the leaders for such things have moved away or become inactive. Listed below are some resources, as well as a breakdown of our weekly class/activity roster. If you're interested in anything and feel a little gun-shy, contact your local Hospitaller to help you break the ice and get you started.

Don't see something you're interested in? Looking for something specific? Contact your A&S Minister to see about arranging a class or adding a new activity to the Calendar.
