The fencing equipment required will give people a good idea of what will be covered over the weekend. Without exceptions, all participants must have the following gear:
- fencing mask,
- fencing jacket or gambeson (a sweatshirt, sweater, regular jacket is NOT an acceptable substitute),
- leather gloves,
- gorget is highly recommended,
- 16th/17th century dagger for rapier, as a good chunk of the time will be spent with sword and dagger.
If you do not possess any one of the above items, and are not currently in the pursuit of them, contact AEMMA immediately so we can set some equipment aside. AEMMA has three rapiers which can be released on loan for the workshop, including up to two daggers.
The cost for the weekend will be $125, and AEMMA will require a $60 deposit by the end of this month (31st of March) to reserve your spot.
