Shed day is taking a break for a while. However, we're now incuding a wider range of arts at "Sewing", including armouring, leatherwork, and wood-work, as well as more traditional quiet indoor activities.

Eleanor and Benedict continued work on their scabbards. Katherina completed her gorget (at last). Emrys worked on a lute rose, and on ways to add rigid protection to the back of the head to fencing masks, to make them suitable for "cut and thrust". Caterine knitted a silk bag.
Emrys and Eleanor attached cross-hilts to shinai (theirs, Ludwig's and Katherina's). Eleanor and Benedict started on scabbards for rapiers using two quite different techniques - the rest of us will wait to see how they work before we decide who to copy. The difficult part seems to be getting a scabbard that works well and looks like 16th century examples that will accomodate the blunts we use to make combat safe.
