Medieval Martial Arts & Craft Centre SA
Eastway Vikings Project will enable weekly meetings and demonstrations for members of the community interested in the 'Viking Age' (period of 9th-10th century). President Alex Foster says the grant means a lot to the group. “We want to bring like-minded people together to learn and have fun and this grant will help us to keep doing that,” Alex says. “Everyone is here to learn and develop their skills through old crafts, and we have members with a wealth of knowledge in areas such as jewellery making, woodworking and leatherworking.” Alex says the group performs at festivals and fairs across SA and interstate. “One day we would love to attend international events in Europe too. We really appreciate the support from the City of Burnside and we would love for more people to join us and get involved.”
