Take a glimpse at Maker Fest 1099 with the Society for Creative Anachronism’s Arts and Sciences group! Their local artisans and creators’ projects range from delicate calligraphy to heavy metal blacksmithing, with particular areas of interest in fiber arts, jewelry, food, and more. They can teach you to brew your own ginger ale, write your own scroll, make your own shoes, and every step of the clothing-making process from sheep to shawl: spinning, dyeing, weaving, and wearing. Come try your hand at experimental archaeology — learn to make things the really old-school way!
