As the school holidays come to a close, we at Blackwolf are excitedly preparing for the start of our new medieval year.
As the weather cools a bit (we hope!!) it is time to haul out swords and shields for fight practice, unpack sewing materials to mend and alter medieval garb, and work out our projects for the 2013 medieval season in Queensland, Australia.
Our number one project is finishing our new medieval Gathering Tent.
It will provide much-needed shelter during the rains that somehow never fail to arrive during our medieval encampments. 🙂
We’ll also be building medieval storage boxes and a few more medieval wooden tables for mundane tasks such as dish-washing and meal-preparation. Those of us charged with cooking duties cannot wait for these back-saving projects to be completed.
Then we will putter away at some fun projects like forging new weapons, wood-burning and decorating our various medieval furniture bits, and planning delicious meals to cook over the medieval camp fire.
Our first event of the season will be History Alive held at Fort Lytton National Park over the weekend of June 8 and 9.
This will be followed by the biggest event in our medieval calendar: the Abbey Medieval Festival held Saturday and Sunday, July 6 and 7.
And last but not least, the most relaxing event of all: the Brisbane Valley Multicultural Festival in Esk the end of July.
Will you be attending any of these events this year? If so, be sure to stop by the Blackwolf Camp to say hello. We’d love to see you! 🙂
