Sykurs helgen 6-7 maj i Uppsala

Äntligen är alla detaljer klara och lokal bokad, så nu kommer den ut officiellt! Välkomna på sömnadskurs i centrala Uppsala helgen 6-7 maj. Jag kommer hålla en helgkurs för dig som vill tillverka egna medeltida (sago) kläder, bli bättre på att sy och rita mönster, få hjälp att sätta ihop fina plagg efter dina egna mått och mycket mer!

Kursen kommer hållas ca 10-18 på lördag + 10-14 söndag och under helgen kommer vi bland annat gå igenom enkel mönsterkonstruktion, inprovning av tajtare plagg, passform, siluett, ärmisättning, sömnad på maskin och för hand, och givetvis massor av inspiration, tips och sömnadsknep. Oavsett om du vill sy medeltida korrekta plagg, inspirerade mysplagg eller fantastiska sagoklänningar så är det här kursen för dig- med gott om tid för eget skapande!

Under kursen finns det verktyg, material, symaskin, mönster och litteratur att låna- så ta med dig dina egna projekt (eller skisser på vad du skulle vilja göra) och material så arbetar vi under helgen med både personlig handledning och allmänna sömnadstips. Det är bra om du provat att sy innan (några gardiner eller ett gammalt projekt i slöjden) för att få ut mesta möjliga av kursen, men du behöver absolut inte vara “duktig”- jag hjälper dig att skapa det du vill ha!

Pris: 1200 kr/person för hela helgen. Rejält eftermiddagsfika på lördag ingår.

Platser: 12 st (för att kunna ge alla massor av individuell handledning så är deltagarantalet lågt)

Anmälan och betalning: anmälan med namn + tel.nr till linda.handcraftedhistory@gmail.com, betalning i förväg till bankkonto/swish (betalinfo + adress fås i svarsmail). Anmälningen räknas som godkänd när betalningen kommit in, först till kvarn på platserna. Om du får förhinder är det ok att överlåta din plats till annan person men avgiften betalas inte tillbaka. Frågor och funderingar kring kursen tas via mail.

The Spring Crown Tournament p 2

Yeah, I know I’m a bit late. But I totally blame the sunny spring weather, meaning that I’m spending my free time outside in the garden or at the stable with my horse. But here’s some more photos from Spring Crown as promised!

 

To get a picture of the autocrats (the main organizers) I had to sneek around and take them by surprise. Above L in her 16th century trossfrau outfit. Below G and Å during a break, while they were actually sitting down on the sofa.

They do seem a little sneeky looking- what are they up to?

L and S working with table decorations in the form of eatable fairy tale houses.

Hanging out by the shop (E & T)

K from Medeltidsmode selling her fabrics…

…and S in her fabulous party outfit thinking about bying some.

And some more nice outfits and happy people hanging out before the banquet during Saturday:

K in his new coat I made for him. Looking real spiffy!

 

Waiting for the banquet, with plates and tableware ready (and some wine in the glass)

After the banquet the party spread out over the site, with dancing, good conversation,

and a couple of additional snacks from the dessert table.

 

All together, it was such a nice event! But, this was all the good photos I had to show you, and now I’m of to my home town Luleå for a weekend of workshops in Frostheims SCA group. We’re going to have such a good time, and I will teach everyone to make good patterns for medieval fitted outfits. So, next week will probably be a workshoprelated post, and then I have some really good posts coming up on a certain theme…

The Spring Crown Tournament

Last weekend me and sweetheart went to a really good SCA event with over 200 people, lots of fun happenings, new friends and a good party. Our group Gyllengran arranged everything, though we only helped out on some small tasks. And, of course there was a tournament, won by Duke Siridean MacLachlan and Lady Jahanara. (Drachenwald crown tournament can be equaled with EM for you non-Sca people who wants to now). I had my shop with me so most of the time was spent selling stuff and talking to new and old friends, but I managed to take some photos from the event.

Handcrafted Historys shop with lots of handcrafting material, accessories for both medieval and viking outfits, some tutorials, jewelry and second hand stuff. My friend B sold stuff to the right, and Kerstin from Medeltidsmode sold her nice fabrics on the far end. Of course I didn’t need anything so I didn’t buy any fabric. I just bought a small piece for a very important but for now secret project…

To keep warm I wore my new houppelande dress, hand sewn in green wool, lined with silk inside the sleeves and trimmed with silk at the bottom. The front is trimmed with rabbit fur that I bought from a woman who breed rabbits for food and fur in her home (she takes good care of the animals, and the tanning is made eco-friendly. For me it’s really important were I get the fur from, since I’m an animal lover and strongly against any cruelty).

On my head, a 15th century hairdo and also my 16th c yellow gollar, lined with some more fur from the same as above, to keep me warm.

Banquet hall is getting prepared and decorated.

Some fighting outdoors with a really big audience.

J & Bs son had a really cute hat to keep warm, and of course a handsewed viking outfit to match his parents.

K looking awesome in her new trossfrau outfit!

My love in the middle, looking as if he had some mischief planned.

I forgot to ask for their names, but I met this really nice couple and look at her amazing headwear! Wow!

This will now turn into an inspirational blog post since people during the afternoon started to change into their party outfits. There were so much nice clothes and handcraft everywere, so I just had to leave my shop with K some time to be able to take photos (no, I didn’t have a chance to take everyones picture but I wish I did). If you know the SCA names of the persons, or the ones that are behind this really awesome outfits- please leave a comment on the post!

The event took place in a really big school, and just as we used to sit around the floors during the breaks when we were in school, some took up small picnics with handcraft during the event.

Ds party outfit, an Italian 15th century I believe.

Well done and awesome 14th century outfit.

There will be a part 2 with more photos, as soon as I have had time to sort them out. Hang in!

(And as usual, if you don’t want to appear here, just send me a notice and I will remove you from the blog. You are also welcome to use the photos you appear on, for private use only, as long as you link to the blog and write out me, Linda, as the photographer.)
