Spangenhelm workshop

posted in: Event | 9

I hosted my first workshop over the weekend. Five students, with varying levels of experience, made their own conical spangenhelms over a period of two days – with impressive results!

Here are four of the budding armourers displaying the fruits of their labour:


I hope to make workshops a regular part of my Summer/Fall schedule, so anyone willing to venture to my shop in Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula is encouraged to forward suggestions for future builds they would want to attend.

      I hope to host a workshop on the long weekend at the end of August, beginning of September. I haven’t decided what projects to offer yet, and I am open to suggestions. Some suggestions so far have been Roman helmets or lorica segmentatae, hourglass gauntlets, and Japanese breastplates.

        You should do a lorica one workshop, a helmet another and continue the theme so people can make an entire set

    I would be interested in attending a spangenhelm work shop, might you hold one next year at some point?

      Maybe even this Fall – I have plenty of interest in another one already! For anyone interested, send me an email and I will contact you to offer pre-registration in the next spangenhelm workshop, when I have a date set.

    Robert, send me an email, then I will have your contact details searchable for when I host another workshop next year.
