I am just finished with two "Just because i can"-projects. Sometimes it feels good just to let all other stuff lie, and just make something else.

Coming up i a large larp project, which will no doubt test both crafting skills as well as leadership and logistic skills.
It will be a new group, but it will reuse a bit of the background from an old group. The aim is to become around thirty soldiers, both men and women, well drilled and trained to the task. It's gonna be very fun. =)

That will probably include making a new uniform coat, a new scabbard (or a new sword), some adjustments on armour and padding, and possibly a new shield or ten.

I would also like to try some shoemaking, but I lack good litterature, or a good teacher.


It's at least not going to be a boring winter. =)

I'd be happy to help you figure out the shoes. It, like armour isn't "hard", but, again- like armour- there are a lot of little steps and tricks, to do it right and well. I'm still learning, but the basics are just that- pretty basic!

That is really very kind of you. =)
I'll pop a note when I have time to start. It may be a while though, it can be hard to get free time when working at sea. ;)

Any time. I'll start to kinda "organize my thoughts" for you, then. Heck- I might run a class or 2 at some symposiums we have here, if I get good at this stuff!

Yeah, it's nice with those smaller projects, eh? Like underwear where you can start and finish it in one evening. Not sure if you've seen this site or not but it might help you with the shoes: [link]

Best of luck with your larp!

No, I hadn't seen that page before. I'll certainly take a good look. =)

Thanks!
