Crafts

Leatherwork

Aasmund is one of the last saddler craftsmen in French-speaking Switzerland and has been working the leather with traditional methods every day for years. Weapon and tool scabbards, bags, bracers, belts, cases for music instruments hold no secrets from him. You will find a link to his website in the shop.

Jewellery

Ingunn has discovered the art of chainmail jewellery and viking knitting during a viking market in Denmark and has been expanding her knowledge and range of articles with lost-wax casting, among other techniques. Silver and bronze can be found in her shop, with necklaces and bracelets, pendants and earrings in chainmail, and reproductions of historical pieces such as Thor's hammers. Her website has a link in the shop.

Horn- and bonework

Ingunn, Ketill and Aasmund also work on bone, horn and antler, to adorn drinking or blowing horns, to chisel tools for weaving or kitchenware, to create knife handles or jewellery.

Woodworking

The same craftspeople also like to engrave wood, to fabricate various objects and to decorate them, always with the viking idea that a useful object also has to be beautiful.

Textile

Ingunn makes tablet-woven bands, too, with natural and historically adequate fibers. On the camps, Ketill is also known for weaving with pleasure. In the textile department, we also make needlebinding (or nålbindning) which is used to create historical hats, socks and gloves.
