At reenactments that I've been to, the "Tea" for the ladies, often times will have some display or demonstration, which lasts maybe about an hour. That is about all that is offered to the civilians to participate in.
Has anyone ever done/been to a hands on workshop to learn a new craft/technique? A workshop for the reenactors not the public.
Most reenactments that "I've" attended in the past were generic in nature, the event was fictional to the area in which the event/battle was taking place. I'm talking the common family oriented events, where you have large groups of civilians, men/women/children.
Many people can not make it to conferences or out of state workshops. Would haveing some kind of alternative activity be of interest to the civilian community at a reenactment? I'm talking about a workshop/class for a fee.
I have read in the past at the mega events there were offered various workshops.
If some type of workshop was offered would there be any interest? Would paying a fee for a "kit/materials", or a list of supplies and bring your own materials be accecptable?
Would a two hour or half day or full day workshops be of interest??
What types of workshops would be of interest?
