Episode 9: Interacting with the public How Two Medieval

So how do I talk to the public at open events? Join Ari and I as we discuss interacting with the public and the benefits of public events. Does one assume the a role entirely and interact in 1st person? Do you take a 3rd person approach or possibly combine the two? Interacting with the public is very rewarding. You can even benefit by attracting other to your group. Sit back and enjoy.

Episode 6: What Do I Need To Start? How Two Medieval

Wonder what basic kit one needs to get started in the Hobby? Don't have a loaner pile in an established group. Don't fear, Join us as we give our idea of a basic kit one would need to start Medieval Living History for the 1390-1410 time period. If you do a later or earlier time period, you can tailor the idea to meet the period equivalent. Most groups or events have a minimum standard one needs to achieve to attend. A few requirements are visible hand stitching and period materials for your specific time. Remember, always have a friend or group veto something before a purchase. This will help you from wasting your time and money.  Sources mentioned: Todd (https://www.facebook.com/thecompanyoftheblackspear/) Ari (https://theturnipofterror.com/) Medieval Tailor’s Assistant. 2nd Edition: Common Garments 1100-1480 by Sarah Tursfield (http://www.amazon.com/Medieval-Tailors-Assistant-2nd-1100-1480/dp/0896762955/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1459882177&sr=1-1&keywords=medieval+tailors+assistant) Episode 5: To Buy or Make (https://anchor.fm/howtwomedieval/episodes/Episode-5-To-buy-or-make-eb6vi8) Lorifactor (http://www.lorifactor.com/index.php) Tod's Workshop (https://todsworkshop.com/)
