Combat is just one part of the SCA. A vast amount of activity within the SCA involves Arts and Sciences, from the clothing we make and wear, to the armour constructed and decorated, to the foods cooked at feasts – generally these are all explorations into Arts and Sciences.

Innilgard has a strong presence in a number of historically based Arts and Sciences including scribal work/calligraphy, cooking, sewing, embroidery, painting, dancing, blacksmithing, armor making and woodworking among other explorations. Arts and Sciences are by no means limited to these activities and can include almost any pursuit or activity that was undertaken in pre-17th century culture.

General Arts and Sciences activities run from midday at our Regular Meetings on Sundays, Dance runs from 11 AM most weeks (and 1pm on weeks of Council meetings) and we run Arts & Sciences Nights on the first Monday of each month.

We host a number of Arts and Sciences competitions, locally and interstate, that are open for all to enter. The forms for A&S Competitions can be found here. A gallery of past projects and competition entries can be found here.
