Cynnabar is a local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA); a group whose mission is to research and recreate pre-seventeenth century history and culture. We do this through events and demonstrations. Newcomers can become involved with activities such as armored combat, rapier combat, archery, cooking and brewing, pottery/ceramics, exploring the fiber arts (sewing, weaving and felting), illumination,... the list goes on and on!
In the beginning the SCA can be overwhelming (and exciting), but don't worry! We want to help! The best way to learn our game is to show up and jump right in! Make sure you check the calendar on Cynnabar's homepage for information about upcoming events. Please check our Gold Key collection for clothing to borrow for your first few events.
I am the Chatelaine, the group’s Newcomer's Officer. It is my pleasure to help get new people oriented. To welcome them and help them enjoy the SCA. Please feel free to reach out and introduce yourself.
