Handcrafted History

Historical and modern handcraft mixed with adventures

Medeltidsveckan på Gotland!


Wow, time sure runs fast during summer. Now it is only 2,5 weeks before the medieval week in Visby, on the island Gotland here in Sweden and I have lots of work to do before we travel there. Me and love will be traveling with our friend L, and as usual, I will be at Kapitelhusgården holding workshops during the week. If you want to attend one of them you can prebook here.

There will also be a Secret Shop opening on a Secret Location in the market place during the week. If you know what I’m talking about- watch out for the sign!

Anyway, I haven’t had the time to write new posts for you, even if I have heaps of good photos and adventures to tell you about. They will have to wait until autumn, and instead I wanted to give you some reading tips (in Swedish and English) if you are preparing for Visby (or any other medieval/viking event) and want some inspiration.

Some photos from last week 2017

…and more photos from the year before

The list I wrote some years ago for packing for a medieval tent event

My guide (in English) to the Medieval week and in Swedish

Hope you will enjoy these links, and if you are going to visit Visby- I would be so happy if you came by and said hi to me =) Some of my most dear memories includes meeting readers and making new friends during the medieval week!

  1. Pitty I’m far away from Sweden, otherwise I would go to all these places for sure. Are you travelling by any chance to the viking event that will be held in August in Wolin (Poland)? I will be there with my viking reenactment group.


  2. Hej! Vad är det för brosch du har på turbanen? Är på jakt efter något liknande till en kommande finstass a la sent 1400 🙂


    • Det är en liten ananasbrosch som är en kopia av en målning från mitten på 1400 ca =) Jag kommer inte ihåg var i från jag beställde den men har också letat mer bra 1400talssmycken. Om du hör med Johanna Lawrence (EvaJohanna arts & crafts) kanske hon är sugen på att bygga något liknande? =)
