Arts and Sciences

The Arts and Sciences in the Society for Creative Anachronism are the crafts, skills, and technologies from the time period and cultures that the SCA covers. Participants research, study, and practice these skills and then share their results with others. You will see them in use and on display at our events – the recipes used for a feast, the armor worn in combat, the scrolls presented in Court, the bard singing around the campfire, and the costumes (garb) we wear, just to name a few.The minister of Arts & Sciences is here to assist newcomers and established members by helping them find an art or science that suits their lifestyle and inclinations, and providing answers by finding resources or an expert in the field. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me directly at
