Bookbinding Come and learn the detailed art of bookbinding. In this class you will learn about the architecture and create your own blank codex-style book (Or a copy of THL Colyne Stewart's “History of Septentria”, if it is formatted and printed in time).  All I will need from you is a full dedicated day!  There is a lot of work involved in making a book, so come prepared to dedicate your whole day.  Please bring a piece of cloth or leather approx. 10” x 13”. The leather should be the thinner leather, like a deer or a calfskin (as in making gloves or hats) and not the thicker kind (e.g. armour weight). A full day is required for this class. Bookbinding is not a quick art, as there are many steps to creating a codex book. Fee (to cover costs of paper and tools) $5.00. Suitable for ages 14 +.

Make a Period Round Pavilion Master Master Terafan will provide instructions, advice, and a demonstration of how to make a medieval round pavilion using the "hub-n-spoke" design.  Students will come away with the tent pieces cut out, part of the roof sewn together, and details for finishing the rest of the tent in a weekend.  Students should read the articles on the website and use the "canvas calculator" to determine the size they want and the amount of canvas they need.   (http://greydragon.org/pavilions/index.html The most common size, 12-spoke with 7ft walls, takes 57 yards of 58-60" canvas.)   Students should bring canvas, scissors, thread, pins, a sewing machine with heavy duty machine needles.   Sunforger canvas is recommended.  Thread should be button-and-craft thread (poly core, cotton wrapped).   Knee-pads will make the cutting more comfortable.  Students are welcome to contact Terafan for advice or more details.

This class will run from 10:30 am – 6 pm.

If you have a machine and don't know how to work it, bring it in, and we can look at it. We will talk about patterns (commercial and others) and about fabric selection. This is a great course that will help you to get started or try new techniques. We can talk about how to bring your garb to the next level (or making your first attempt). Don't be afraid...this class is fun! Please bring any garb questions you may have too! Class size is limited to 6-8 people, and students should if possible, bring their own sewing machine, particularly if they have questions about it. Instructor is bringing two machines.

Using a Cutthroat Razor: Shaving in the Middle Ages  A brief history about shaving in the middle ages with the cutthroat razor, how to use and care for a cutthroat, where to obtain them and a workshop for beginners on shaving techniques. Bring your straight razor if you own one!  The course aims to dispel the myth that shaving in the Middle Ages was a tedious and painful affair (It is actually preferable to modern methods). As well, this is to give people another dimension of authenticity generally unexplored in the SCA.  After all, the disposable razor is not period. For the hands-on section, participants will practice with wooden blanks in order to learn different strokes without risk of injury. The brave may then learn hands-on with real razors under close supervision. The course will end with the care and maintenance of a razor, stropping/honing/storing.
