How to make a viking dress
I used to be a part of one history reenactment group some time ago. Such groups basically reconstruct elements of daily life of people from a selected time period; my group was interested in early Middle Ages, from the 8th to the 11th century, from the Eastern and Northern Europe. Personally, I used to reconstruct a viking woman from today's Sweden areas. Most of you will be shocked, but vikings were not half-naked barbarians with horned helmets. They had no horned helmets. Really.
Anyway, my favourite part of reenactment has always been all the suit making. Buing materials, planning, cutting, sewing (hand sewing!), embroidering. Then, wearing. Generally, viking clothes are very easy to make, though I admit that the materials aren't the cheapest, if you want to make it as much accurate historically as you can. 
I've prepared a simple tutorial about how to make a typical viking dress. As I've said, it's very easy to make, but it takes time, when you don't use a sewing machine. Up t

A 'Whittle' Magic: Carve Your Own Wand (Part 2)
Artisan Crafts Week
Part 2A: Carving the Details
Welcome to the final part of A Whittle Magic: Carve Your Own Wand, where we will use basic whittling techniques to carve a Harry Potter-style wand from wood. In Part 1, we practiced some simple whittling cuts and used those cuts to carve the basic shape of the wand. Now, in Part 2, we’ll refine the design by carving the details before moving on to sanding, staining, and finishing.
Because we will be working with sharp knives in close proximity to fingers, this workshop is recommended for those 15 years of age and older.
Caution!! Woodworking is NOT a risk-free craft. Review these safety rules from Part 1 before continuing. Disregard them at your own risk.
Always protect your hands.
Always cut AWAY from yourself. Avoid cutting towards yourself if at all possible.
Always keep your knives shar
