Description

Korffs Haven Medieval Guild are a re-enactment group based in Coffs Harbour, or Korffs Haven, in New South Wales. The group concentrate on the period 1066-1166 and such peoples as Anglo-Saxons, Anglo-Normans, Crusaders, Highlanders (of Scotland), and Vikings. Combat and weapon training with swords, spears, staves, shields, slingshots, archery, chain mail, and helmets is carried out. Other medieval activities are also re-created, including cooking, clothes-making, feasting, games, and craft (woodwork, leatherwork, felting, embroidery, dyeing, sewing etc.). The group’s website features a useful section on making medieval clothes, including patterns.
