Wundowie Iron Festival

Posted on May 21, 2017 by

Had a great time today at the Wundowie Iron Festival, even if it was a bit windy. The rain cleared up by lunchtime for the most part. The Circle of the Sword and the WA Bezerkers (the WA side of the Historical Medieval Battles Scene) put on a great performance of longsword and melee battles respectively.

Highland Gathering 2015

Posted on September 25, 2015 by

Armadale’s annual Highland Gathering was a blast again on September 13th at Minnawarra Park. Though a little wet from the previous week’s rain, it was blessedly rain-free on the day and there were kilts a plenty to be seen when the particpants in the Kilt Run went flying by. The SCA and Grey Company (see below) provided wonderful entertainment and there was caber tossing, stone lifting, folk music and Scottish dancing as well.   Western Leathercraft ran a stall at the Highland Gathering for the sixth year in a row.

Mask Making

Posted on September 23, 2015 by

Back in 2010 I went to the Dimensions in Leather Convention in Queensland and one of the courses I took there was a Commedia dell’Arte mask making. In 2012, I tried my hand at making a mask using a simple plastic craft mask as a last. This is how it turned out

York Medieval Faire

Posted on September 21, 2015 by

This year, the York Medieval Faire will be held on October 25th. The Faire will be split between two locations – with the Medieval Tournaments, Displays and Vendors being on the area along the river, behind the newly refurbished Coffee Carriage, adjacent to Avon Park. Public entry is still only $5 and kids free, with proceeds again for the homeless ($5,000 was raised last year). General market vendors will be at Peace Park, where they were last year.

The Medieval Parade will be at 1.30pm and there will be knights and various combatants, including LARPers fighting all day in the arena.

Here’s some pictures from last year’s faire:
