Greetings!

GroupPhotoWelcome to Ildhafn 

We are a medieval and renaissance re-creation club. 

We hold regular events where we  dress like medieval or renaissance people, feast, dance, sing and participate in tournaments. Between events, most of us practice various arts & crafts, and pursue specialised areas of interest such as weaving, dancing, fencing, armouring, sewing, heraldry, shoe-making, book-binding, calligraphy, illumination, music, brewing & cooking. There are few historic crafts that one of us would not have touched on at some time.

New members are welcome, whether you want to become heavily involved, or just have a go once or twice a year.

This website is mainly about the Auckland branch. The website for the Hamilton/Waikato part of the group (the Canton of Cluain) is here. There are links here to other SCA groups in New Zealand, and around the world.


SCA in the Sunday Star Times

Recently we had a journalist from the Sunday Star Times come along to a couple of rapier evenings and he also visited May Crown; his article has just been published today and is also available in the glossy section of the Sunday Start Times.
