  • Pottery
  • Illumination
  • Calligraphy/ Hand Lettering
  • Feasting (both cooking and eating!)
  • Brewing
  • Historically-accurate clothing (in the SCA, we refer to this as “garb”)
  • Medieval history (and political machinations!)
  • Lace-making
  • Jewelry (metals, beads, etc.)
  • Animal Husbandry
  • Herbalism and gardening
  • Coursing
  • Equestrian activities
