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, and events often include classes.
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, and bronze casting.
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.
