      As an aside,there is a difference between a trade apprenticeship and an
      SCA "Apprentice"

      The first is a formal period of work-for-teaching that can happen in any
      skilled trade. The "master" in this relationship is of no particular rank
      in the SCA, but should be an acknoledged master of their trade.

      The second is a formal relationship, involving teaching, with an SCA
      Laurel, much like an SCA Squire is to a Knight. It also can involve being
      part of someone's household, or other privledges or obligations.

      If you happen to find a master blacksmith who is also a Master of the
      Laurel,be sure you are both clear on which sort of apprenticeship you are
      entering into.
