knowledge of period name construction and armory design would be helpful,
but beginners are also welcome. Bryn Gwlad's fighter practice, which
usually includes costume making and other non-fighting activities, takes
place at the same site on Sunday afternoons for the entertainment of any
non-heralds who might like to ride along. A group of us may also go out to
dinner after the workshop is finished.
