What are “Arts and Sciences”
In the SCA, Arts and Sciences refers to the various and sundry activities that we participate that are not fighting. They primarily involve making things–sewing, brewing, blacksmithing, crafting, scribing, illuminating, etc. We create music and we dance. We cook grand feasts! Any and all medieval activities that you may be interested will be learned and practiced by someone somewhere.
Cote du Ciel Sewing Guild
The Sewing Guild’s motto is “Une tentative a été faite” which is French for “An Attempt Was Made”
Within the SCA, costuming choices are as wide and varied as its members and there is something for every personal style. Whether your tastes lie with the simplicity of the Anglo-Saxon chiton of the tenth century or the fitted European cotehardie of the fourteenth century, with the Celtic knotwork embroidered garments so popular in the Viking Age or the grandeur of sixteenth-century Elizabethan fashion, you will find someone who shares your passion in the CDC Sewing Guild! Costuming is one of the most effective vehicles to transport us visually from the modern to the medieval world and costumes feel pride in creating wearable art that adds to the medieval ambiance that is enjoyed within the SCA.
The Cote Du Ciel Sewing Guild is currently on hiatus. The Cote Du Ciel Sewing Guild usually meets every 2nd and 4th Tuesday night from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm in the USU Chase Fine Arts Center’s Costume Shop, Room 229. Sewing Guild nights allow those who need to work on sewing projects to gather and get their projects done. Machines, cutting tables, instruction and such are available. Please bring research on your projects that you would like help creating as we are not experts in every era and every location. We look forward to seeing you there!
