Viking Helmet Workshop
November 18 & 19, 2017
9am to 6pm
$250 (+tax) tools & materials included
class size of 4 or 5
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.
