Viking Helmet with Bob Compton. #1360-0711. 4 days.
July 11 @ 9:00 am - July 14 @ 4:00 pm$100. – $470.
In this class students will make a custom sized spangenhelm style helmet with or without a simple nose guard. The helmet will include a leather liner/suspension system for comfort. This method of construction was a simple, yet effective way of making a helmet far more quickly than creating a helmet from a single piece of iron plate. Topics to be covered during this class will include: generating the necessary patterns for the various pieces needed, cutting, shaping and assembling those pieces, and creating and attaching the leather liner.
NOTE: Hard shoes and long pants are required for students’ safety.
