As a professional historical interpreter, I offer demonstrations of braiding, heddle and tablet weaving as a silkwoman. These can be made either as a display or as participatory and educational workshops for both children and adults. A variety of costume and practical uses of these narrow wares are also shown, appropriate to the period to be covered.

Lectures and presentations as a housewife-cook show a wide range of utensils and methods with a - hopefully! - witty overview on status, ingredients, availability, etiquette and custom. A full cookery demonstration, from start to finished dish, can be performed where facilities are available.
