In the SCA, as an educational group, artisans work to keep alive the knowledge, crafts and skills of the eras encompassed in the time periods of the Society’s focus, approximately 600-1600. The Minister of Arts and Sciences is responsible for fostering the study of period culture and technology, as well as methods for producing historically accurate artifacts, research and performances. Starkhafn artisans participate in a variety of projects, classes & topics every Tuesday night.
The focus for each A&S night is different and held at different locations.
