I would make that "usually" A&S related. Bryn Gwlad at one time had
an armorers Guild who purpose was not only to work on armor but to
study medieval armor. Though broadly an A&S thing, this is not something
that some would think of when mentioning A&S.

Another guild was the Middle Eastern Guild, which studied all aspects
of Middle Eastern culture and not just dancing or other arts.

Bryn Gwlad has sometimes had a series of Craft Nights in which people got
togther and brought along whatever project they were working on. Sometimes
communal projects were done at this time also.
