20th September I will be giving a lecture on;

Chain, chainmaille and the Victorians.

Here:

I will be in the Steampunk Zone on Sunday at 1PM, I'll post a bigger list of what's going on in the gatherings section ( I've given the talk once before at the Surrey Steampunk convivial and it went down very well, adding a little dash of history to the general frivolities.

I will be covering a number of subjects. Armour, day to day wear, insanity, punishment, technology and metaphor. Afterwards I will be holding a limited place chainmaille workshop. Introducing the public to 4 in 1 and Byzantine in easy to close aluminium.

So if your in Brighton and are at a loss for something to do... Very Happy

Thanks

It went very well! First time had a nice group of avid Steampunks as a result it all went smoothly. Second time not so well it was with punters. They're not there to be lectured to, they want quick distractions.

So yes a learning curve. Still I did manage to teach a couple of people some 4 in 1 and some Byzantine. I have the lecture as a pdf, and the notes. I was considering quick timing the whole thing up as a bit of multimedia.

I can publish the lecture notes and the pdf in the mean time. Very Happy
