Description

Armoury demonstrations take place under period tentage and using authentic tools and techniques of the Medieval or Tudor periods.  This can include a full forge based on the Emperor Maximilian's armoury in Innsbruck - and an actual 15th century anvil.

I work on a variety of pieces to show a range of tools and techniques which I explain along with their historical references.

As armour making takes many hours of work several visits to see the progress made provides an all day activity.  I also always have examples of completed work to show.

Talks and demonstrations are tailored for special interest groups and all ages.
