Swordplay demonstrations and workshops! Crafts, face painting and more, inspired by the Armour exhibition.
Don’t miss this action-packed day of activities inspired by the Armour exhibition! Watch demonstrations of historical European martial arts by Armoured Company of the Sword, whose members spar (safely!) using modern and traditional equipment. Hone your own medieval battle skills in all-ages educational workshops led by Ottawa Swordplay. Learn sword techniques used by knights and peasant soldiers alike. Visit the craft area to make and decorate your own gauntlet and shield to take home with you. Come in your own armour-inspired costume and have your face painted by On Scene FX.
Please note that all events are subject to change.
