SCA – Gulf Wars 2016 Teaching

For those of you SCA folk that might be attending Gulf Wars 25th, I am teaching once again in the woodworking tents. There are a bunch of classes being taught by a lot of different people about almost anything medieval. More details on Gulf Wars A&S Activities are available. The class schedule is being finalized as I type this and should be available soon on at least one of the above web sites.

Classes that I am either teaching or heavily involved with include:

  • Bench Design – round table discussion on different designs
  • Hand Planes – discussion and hands on use, bench top flattening
  • Stone, Bone & Antler Carving – lecture and lots of teaching aids
  • Molding Planes – discussion and hands on use
  • Dovetail Joints – hands on dovetails
  • Joinery – discussion on different joinery techniques
  • Sharpening – woodworking tools
  • Wood Identification – this should be pretty self explanatory
  • 60 Tools in 90 minutes – what is in some of our tool chests
  • Plane Making Demo – I will be available working on planes throughout the day, come ask questions and try them out

Lunch time is a bring your own or donate type of setup. Sit down and have a deep or light hearted conversation with the instructors in the woodworking tent at Artisans Row.

Oh and one last thing, Rhydderch will be doing another class on a Rose Window. For those of you who missed it last year it’s totally worth a walk by to see it! Stop by Artisans Row and see the window and take some fun classes.
