Living History Workshop
Also shown are cast Thor’s Hammers, a bone needlecase and a bone comb Cass made as well.
The Shire of Pavlok Gorod, a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism Inc. will be hosting a living history workshop area at the Kodiak Public Library. Tuesday 11/7 and Thursday 11/9 we will be there 2:30-6:30 and Saturday 11/12 from 1-4:30. Seneschalle Sonia Clary, whose SCA persona is Lady Mairghead, has been a re-enactor/ re-creator since childhood. She is an expert in fiber arts and has made her own Viking apron dress just for the event! She also loves researching historical games. A copy of the game Hnefatafl, made by an SCA member in Fairbanks, Cass Peterson, will be available for people to play. Come by and challenge Sonia to a game.
Other members who will be at the living history exhibit include the Shire’s Arts and Sciences officer Erin Wall, Lady Ketevan in the SCA, and Chatelaine Tamie Fogle, who is known as Viscountess Tama Katerina to her SCA friends. Erin is a lifelong artist whose work can be found at the local craft bazaars. She has been researching the styles and techniques of art the Vikings used from AD 240-1125 and would be happy to talk with you and demonstrate what she has learned. Tamie came to re-enactment and the joy of learning history by doing it 20 years ago. She has experimented with many different fiber arts and recently learned naalbinding. She will be teaching anyone who wishes to learn the Oslo stitch, which can be used to make hats, socks, scarves and other items.
