THL Olrun will schedule classes, organize project nights, and serve as a resource person.
The Arts provide beauty, pageantry, and that medieval flavor to everything we do in the SCA. As an educational group, the Arts provide a focus for teaching and learning. Have you been wondering how to make a particular garment? Interested in trying your hand at calligraphy? How about metal work or historic cooking techniques?

Viking Wire Weaving Class Info
Taught by Lord Gwynne Bleyne of Tor an Riogh (Starkville, MS)
Come learn the beautiful art of Viking Wire weaving on Saturday, December 21, 2013.
Location to be determined
Class will start around 10:00am
Class will consist of:
- Starting a wire weaving project
- Actual weaving of a project
- Terminating a project
- “pulling” your project.
Class will cost either $30.00 or $10.00 depending on the following choices:
$30.00 covers the class fee of $10.00 and provides each person a kit that they keep including the following:
- 2 spools copper wire (enough to make a full necklace and have some left)
- Pulling board
- Set of five jewelry tools
- Case to keep everything in
$10.00 covers class fee but you have to provide your own materials as listed below:
- 2 spools 24 gauge copper wire, round, or any type wire this size (NOT DEAD SOFT)
- One pulling board
- Flat pliers
- Needle nose pliers
- Jewelers chain nose pliers
- Wire cutters
- Case/box to keep your supplies contained to your area
There will be no piece-mealing of kits! You either provide all the materials listed above and pay $10.00, or you pay the full $30.00 to purchase your own kit. There will not be any extra materials to share with those that do not bring their own supplies.
Class kits are limited to 10.
You MUST pre-register for class. All kits must be purchased no later than December 10, unless the class is filled before then.
If you do not pay for your kit or your class fee prior to this date, you will not be able to attend the class. If you do not sign up for the class by December 10 by emailing me at (moc.o1386684806ohay@138668480629soa1386684806hcner1386684806) and have your money in my hand by that day you cannot attend the class.
If we do not have a MINIMUM of 10 people to sign up for the class by December 10, the class will be CANCELLED.
There is no limit to the quantity of people who bring their own supplies; your materials will be checked against the list when you show up for class.
This is a hands-on class, not a lecture class. You cannot just “sit in” without participating. If you want to just attend this class and listen, it will STILL cost you $10.00
Now the rules may sound harsh to some of you, however, this good man is giving up his weekend and travelling over a HUNDRED MILES to share his talents and time with us. I am making up these kits out of my own pocket with my business discount to keep the costs as low as I can. There is no profit margin, and you keep all the tools so that you can pursue this technique further. The reason we aren’t doing loaner tools is because these tools are not dedicated to just this project, but can be used for many other things. Also, if he is committing to coming up to teach this wonderful class, you, as a student, should commit time and money to learning it. The class fee is to help cover expenses to get here, and there is no class anywhere that you can take for this great price. IF you have any questions, or comments, please contact me directly at (moc.o1386684806ohay@138668480639soa1386684806hcner1386684806) or (225) 610-6981 and I will be happy to assist you.
