Description

This workshop will provide access to 3D models, reproductions, and actual artifacts from the Oakeshott Institute’s collection of edged weapons to explore ways to nuance medieval encounters. We see this workshop as participating in the material turn, particularly complementing the work done by the Making and Knowing Project at Columbia led by Dr. Pamela Smith. Making, using, and studying edged weapons requires both technical expertise and artistic skill. The photogrammetry methods used to create our 3D models is a digital example of this combination of science and art. By focusing on the pedagogical uses of the models, reproductions, and artifacts this workshop prioritizes the application of the methodology behind the material turn and expands on the use of tacit learning models.
