As a guest of dear interpreter friends from southern Germany, I was part of the Mittelaltertage im Freilandmuseum Bad Windsheim event during which several interpreters from early and late medieval period are living in the houses of the open air museum for several days.

Since the local hospital celebrated it’s 700 year anniversary, there was a wonderful special exhibition in the nearby Museum Kirche in Franken on the topic of medieval and post medieval hospitals which two of the leading interpreters of our part of the event were involved in creating.

This anniversary was our inspiration for the 14th century part of the event. In 3 different houses we recreated different parts of the hospital business and showed different aspects of care for the sick and the administration of the hospital. A detailed report of the event will follow soon.

Each of the 20 interpreters involved had a certain topic or area to prepare and me and Thomas, my IG14 colleague chose to manage the bathhouse integrated in the hospital due to our previous experiences in that topic . For this I still needed some equipment.

On the occasion of the “Straw hat month April, I have tried my skills at another project, a straw hat in the technique of the Lengberg finds. I had started it last August at our event at Bachritterburg Kanzach. Since I experimented with the technique for  another impression of mine , I still had a lot of the material left.

After finally being lucky and finding new hat-straw at a reasonable price online, I could work on my favorite craft again, making hats. I did work quite a bit at the Medieval days Bad Windsheim, which I was invited to by German friends of mine as the “Newbie” of the event crew. I made a rather classical modell, but with a little point at the top, I tried to make this model here.

There is really not much to say about the technique which I have not said in my article about my first hat.
