If you live in a larger community, look around to find out if you have a
local SCA group (Society for Creative Anachronism) They do lots of things

For those of you wondering, the SCA is a group of people who recreate life
during the Middle Ages. You are most likely to see them practicing
broadsword fighting (in full armor) and fencing. Besides fighting, each
person in the group also pursues an aspect of medieval life (cooking,
sewing, arts, etc.)

Myself, I recreate medieval pottery, but there are people in my group who
create all kinds of stuff out of leather. Armor, belts, purses, shoes, hats,
lots of stuff.

If you can't find one let me know and I'll try to get you some more ideas.
