10 AM  Interrupting Un-Chivalric Behaviours   

Seneschal’s Pavilion                  1 hour                          Free

          Genevieve Choue                                  Open to Teens & Adults (12 and older)

10 AM  Managing Medieval Spindles:  Hookless Hand Spindles

            Covered Picnic Area                  2 hours                         $3.00

            Halmia al-Rakkasa                                 Open to Youth, Teens & Adults (9 and older)

You’ve seen the images of spinners of all classes at work: a stick with a football of growing yarn, and a bigger stick with fibre of some sort.  Managing Medieval Spindles covers developing the skill to use hookless spindles in=hand and supported, and recognizing the style of spindle that is suited to the form.  If all goes well, we will also work with a distaff of wool to enhance the speed of yarn creation.   Come and spin a yarn!

Students are welcome to bring their own fibre, spindles, and distaffs.  Equipment will be available for the duration of the class.  Note taking materials and a chair.

            Covered Picnic Area                  2 Hours                        $1.00

            Halima al-Rakkasa                                 Open to Youth, Teens & Adults (9 and older)

Dance has always been a part of civilized societies.  Solo dances of the Near  East have survived and changed over the centuries, yet the soul of what we now call ‘belly dance’ still thrives.  This is an active class where we will explore connections between music and movement, and between movement and emotion.  We will see past dancing for entertainment, and explore the mind set of personal expression where the audience is an extension of the dancer’s consciousness.  Belly dance skills are helpful, but not required.  We will begin with a few stretches and cover a few basic moves.  Be prepared to dance with your soul.

Students should have minimal clothing layers and footwear safe for dancing.  A Hip Sash is helpful.  No corsets, long dress trains, knives or pouches in class.  Note taking materials may be useful.

Discussion of roles of field, court and silent heralds at SCA events and how students can participate.  Brief scan of the Tir Righ Ceremonial to discuss Voice Heraldry.  Examples of heraldic display in period and in the SCA; including identification at events of ones’ stuff and people/family/liege lines.  Discussion on basiv device/arms heraldry and how to get one of their own.  Questions and Answers and creating devices and/or badges as time allows.

This class is particularly open to Children, Youth and Teens (YAFA).  Aspects of the presentation connect to YAFA Token (Heraldry) requirements.  Youth and Teens love understanding our flags, banners and shields.  They also have some of the BEST designs for Devices and Badges.
