Arts and Sciences of the Middle Ages

The SCA has seen 50 years of learning and scholarship in the creative skills and crafts of the pre-1600AD period.  It holds a strong appeal to many who wish to discover new hobbies, or add context to their existing endeavours.

In Thamesreach, we host a rich variety of workshops, crafting afternoons, and social gatherings. Some of our members are master craftsmen and women, many of whom are at the top of the field, capable of producing authentic and museum-quality research and production.

Our revels have recently covered such topics as 12th-15th century costume, dances from across the periods, period perfumes, calligraphy, illumination, leather-working and shoemaking, pewter casting, armouring, jewellry and accessories, and of course food!
