Medieval Arts Fighter Practice Planned Monday at SWOSU

A fighter practice with members of the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA) will be held this Monday, May 22, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The public is invited to the event from 4-9 p.m. on the south lawn of the Memorial Student Center. Admission is free.

The Monday event is a monthly meeting for SWOSU students and faculty who hosted the SWOSU Medieval Arts and Crafts Fair earlier this year. The group is planning the next event in conjunction with the Weatherford Arts Council on November 11.

On Monday, an authorizing knight marshal from the SCA group, Canton of Haldtre, will demonstrate how to fight safely. Loaner armour will be available for anyone above 18 years old who is interested in joining the fighter practice. SWOSU liability form will need to be signed at the event.

Also, SWOSU Assistant Professor Dr. Siriporn Peters will teach how to braid a traditional European fingerloop and how to make medieval garbs.
