Sources for young people?
- Greetings all,
My kids and I are just starting to get involved in SCA. My oldest
daughter (14) and sons (11 & 12) attended a demo in the Shire of
Endewearde yesterday. (I was unable to go due to being in Boston
Children's Hospital with my 8 year-old.) They have interested been
for awhile, but are now anxious to get started.
We are interested in pretty much everything--archery, calligraphy,
dancing, illumination, sewing, etc...There has been a lot of
discussion about names, garb, bows, and especially authenticity.
Does anyone have suggestions for "kid-friendly" sources that would
be suitably authentic and yet not too dry. They are bright,
homeschooled, and very excited.
Also, regarding garb: It is my understanding that children's garb
is basically the same as adults. Is this the general understanding?
I figure we would probably start with a fairly "generic" European
For sources, try the links on the SCA website
(sca.org) also, many of the kindgom sites have links
to good resources. Kids do often wear similar garb to
adults, except it is often much simpler since kids
grow so fast, it's hard (and expensive) to keep them
in fancy garb.
