Designed by Black Raven Armoury founder and teacher of The Academy Alex Agricola, the Freya SCA Armour was a design born of the inspiration taken from countless students across the world. Conceptualised ?live? during the very first module of his foundation course & developed from start to finish in a class filled with aspiring craftspeople, it was created to demonstrate his theory of ?less is more?
A classic looking piece, yet the simplicity coupled with detail, echoing a heroism while its embossed detail telling a story of strength and endurance, this piece … both a journey and a story.
Now comes a unique choice …. have it built by Black Raven Armoury OR join Alex in the Academy Course teaching you how to create this and many of your own projects.
