Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to the SHEAF Blog.

Despite our best intentions, we're not great at keeping this blog updated with our latest happenings. We are, however, definitely an active group, meeting at least once each week during term time.

If you'd like to make contact with Dunedin home educators, our contact details are in the column, below right.

We send out a weekly email newsletter with details of upcoming events, courses, gatherings etc.

You can also find us on Facebook (page is visible whether you're a facebook user or not)

Have a look through this blog to see the types of events we have organised in the past. You'll also find links to other blogs and articles that we find useful or informative, on the off-chance that you'll appreciate them too :~) (Look for these more general blog-posts under the label "Weekend Reading")

If you're not currently on our email list and would like to contact us, please email us at the address you can see in the column on the right. We'd love to hear from you!

Interested in things Medieval?

From Stacey:

Our family is going Medieval this year and have joined a local reenactment group (http://kessog.sca.org.nz/index.htm). I thought I'd everyone else know about it, in case they or their offspring have a hankering for dressing up, learning new/old skills and dabbling in medieval combat (like archery etc), or cooking, embroidery, bone carving... They are a uni group (although apparently most of their members are not actually students at present), so are just sorting out their schedule for the year.

There is a Feast and Collegium day coming up in March where there will be daytime workshops, and a fairly early feast (I'm taking Ella to the feast, but will probably not stay for the dancing). http://kessog.sca.org.nz/St%20Kessog%20feast.htm You can borrow garb from the club, so don't feel that you need to enslave yourself to your sewing machine before coming! (Having said that, though, they don't have any children's garb, so a little sewing for the kiddies might be in order - I've got patterns and links to various internet sites so if you'd like more information, just contact me). If you want to know more, get in touch with me, or contact the Seneschal through their website.
