What is Oak Spring?
Oak Spring is made up of a (currently) small group of people who enjoy exploring life from the Middle Ages as participants in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Oak Spring is located in the modern city of Ada, OK. We are an outpost of the Barony of Namron (centered in the modern city of Norman, OK) in the Kingdom of Ansteorra (made up of most of Oklahoma and Texas). Oak Spring is NOT an officially recognized SCA group though we are working very hard at becoming one.
If you live in the Ada area and would like to see first hand what you do, that’s wonderful. We invite any and all interested persons to come to an activity to learn more about what we do.
Oak Spring Meetings
Oak Spring hosts several meetings per month. All of our meetings are open to the public. Some are centered around specific subject matter. Others are just about getting together to have some fun. Dates, times and locations are subject to change depending upon the weather and SCA sponsored events outside of the Ada, OK area. Notices regarding changes will be posted in advance, when possible, to our Facebook group page (link below). Period style clothing is not required to attend meetings, but is encouraged.
Arts & Sciences Night
Arts & Science Night is simply a time for us to get together and work on individual period themed projects while spending time with one another. This includes things like embroidery, leather working, sewing, armor making, weaving and everything in between. This is also a time for sharing information about your craft or learning a new one. Working on a project is not required. We enjoy conversation as much as we do crafting. The second Thursday of every month will be our themed Arts & Science Night. Themes will vary in subject matter and length. Some themes will only take one session while others may be ongoing for a length of time.
A gather is just what it sounds like. Society for Creative Anachronism participants from Ada and surrounding areas gather together to work on arts & crafts, share information and generally enjoy one another’s company.
Our monthly business meeting is held before our Arts and Science Night that is scheduled for the same time. We discuss the behind the scenes stuff that keeps Oak Spring running smoothly. Votes are taken and final decisions are made at the business meeting. As with all our meetings, the business meeting is open to the public.
Please address questions to Honorable Lord Ian the Green.
