Four-plate helmet

Build a Viking Age spangenhelm or four-plate helmet over the course of a weekend. The skills required to attend are minimal – familiarity with a drill and hammer should suffice. Under the instruction of armourer Jeffrey Hildebrandt, you will dish, planish, rivet and finish a helmet to your own taste and measurements.

Drinks and lunch will be provided.
