New Sword Classes at WAM!
October 25, noon-1pm
November 15, noon-1pm
December 13, noon-1pm
Try-it! Sword programs at WAM are now enrolling! If you are inspired by our Knights! exhibition, you will love our new one hour workshops. These workshops are ideal for people who are interested in history, geometry and physics, and strategies. Sign up for multiple workshops to learn about the use of various weaponry from the Medieval and Renaissance periods. This class is as much for your mind as for your body.
In the drop-in workshop we will explore the technology and physicality of the longsword. How this weapon works is rooted in the development and interrelatedness of armor, engineering, and fighting goals. The class will be centered on some discussion of these points but more importantly exploring how to use a sword! This includes learning the parts of the sword, how to hold a sword and, the more exciting aspects, offensive and defensive cuts and guards.
$10 per person for both members/nonmembers
Limit of eight students per class
