The Arts and Sciences is a broad category within the SCA that includes all sorts of ways of knowing and creating things from the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The Shire holds workshops on particular topics, usually on the 3rd Thursday of the month, and events often include classes. A&S workshops are announced on the email list and Facebook page, or contact the Minister of Arts and Sciences at MOAS@hartshorn-dale.eastkingdom.org .
If there is a skill you’d like to learn, contact the Minister of Arts and Sciences to find a teacher. Recent workshops have included making Viking garb, painting silk banners, bronze casting, and velvet embossing.
The best way to understand the range of A&S (as the Arts & Sciences are often called) is visually. The items in the gallery below were made by members of the Shire.
