AFS: Viking Helmet with Bob Compton

August 10, 2023 @ 9:00 am - August 13, 2023 @ 4:00 pm


A few years ago, Bob and his son (who has very little forging experience) took on the project of making ÒVikingÓ helmets.Ê It turned out to be an incredibly fun and satisfying project and at the time Bob thought what a great class this would make. In this class students will make a personal sized spangenhelm style helmet with or without a simple nose guard. The helmet will include a leather liner/suspension system for comfort.Ê This ribbed 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 the class will include how to developÊthe necessary patterns for the various pieces needed, cutting, shaping, and assembling those pieces, and creating and attaching the leather liner. Special Notes: Hard shoes and long pants are required for studentÕs safety.
