Members of the SCA learn about the past by researching period arts, crafts, and traditions and then experience history by recreating it.
Some of these activities include:
- Calligraphy & Illumination (Scribal)
- Cooking and Brewing
- Fiber arts, such as costuming, weaving, spinning, knitting and embroidery
- Woodworking, Leatherworking and Metalworking
- Music (both vocal and instrumental) and Dance
The Caldrithig choral group have practices every Sunday from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Details on repertoire, practice times, and locations can be found on their website. New members of all experience levels are welcome!
The Caldrithig instrumental group have practices every Sunday from 12:00pm to 1:45pm. Details on repertoire, practice times, and locations can be found on their website. New members of all experience levels are welcome!
The scribal arts include illumination, calligraphy and word-smithing, in the style of manuscripts and other art from before the 17th century. We invite anyone interested in pre-1600 art to attend an A&S day or a Scribal Evening and find out more – our community is always eager to share knowledge and encourage new efforts. Examples of our work can be seen on the Baronial A&S Pinterest page at https://www.pinterest.com/skraelAandS/caligraphyillumination/. Scribal Evenings are held once monthly: check the calendar for more information.
The Caldrithig dance group has practices every Tuesday from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, at the Routhier Community Centre, 172 Guigues Ave (see Caldrithig Calendar for map link). Our repertoire focuses mostly on European renaissance dance (mostly from England, France, and Italy).
New dancers are always welcome – and are encouraged to bring a water bottle (or mug) and comfortable footwear!
