The Institute for Historic & Educational Arts:
"Keeping the skills of the past,
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see real armour being built? What would it be like to watch a Woodwright handcrafting wood projects with archaic tools? How about blacksmiths beating metal in a forge? Or, watched Spanish blackwork painstakingly stitched by hand? Ever observed a potter turning a vase?
IHEA is a group of volunteers who are dedicated to teaching many of these almost "Lost and Forgotten" Arts.
The artisans who volunteer their time with the Institute for Historic & Educational Arts love to share the knowledge and skills they have gleaned from their research of the Medieval and Renaissance Periods. Chat with us, take a class or spend time observing our demonstration.
