If You've Never Been To An SCA Event Before, Please Note: Practicum is a medieval event within the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). A reasonable attempt at pre-17th Century dress is required for the evening activities.

What did medieval people do in the winter months by the fire when they were not off a viking or on a crusade laying siege to their neighbours? They had to prepare new weapons and fix old armour, creating the latest fashion or illuminating the latest ransom note.  Whiling away the time and otherwise entertaining themselves during the long cold winter months.  With this in mind we wish to invite one and all to come out and enjoy a day of learning new things and partake in discussions  and activities that might have been of interest indoors by the hearth (be it in your long house or in your castle) while the snow fell outside.  There will be a full days programming for children classes, parents are requested to offer some time helping out, as this is not designed as a babysitting service.
