SCA Resume: Lord Ihone Munro

Apprentice to Mistress Etain of Southerland

Member from 8/1994 – Current
aka Ian Munro of the Black Rose

I began my activity in the SCA after having been introduced to the Society by Sir Jason of Andover, founding Baron of Sacred Stone, while taking his classes at CPCC. My initial interests were based heavily around rapier and archery activity and I assisted in building up the rapier community by holding practices and gatherings in my home for several years. I did play on the Canton level initially, but ended up becoming more focused on a household basis while maintaining activity at events, finding comfort in the tree line.

I moved to Hawkwood in 1999, where I was introduced to the local group and became very active. Initially there were two other active rapier fighters, and we were able to assist the community growth over the next couple of years. It was at this point that I also began revisiting a lifelong passion within the Hard Arts, primarily woodworking and leatherwork.

During that time, I also assisted with founding of The Corsairium, a Chartered Guild focused on Nautical Studies and Privateering. I moved back to the Charlotte area in 2003 after sustaining a significant knee injury and was soon after married and had children, causing a decrease in activity for a couple of years.

When I returned with more regularity, I shifted my focus away from the field and into the A&S Activity with a renewed enthusiasm, primarily focusing on my leather work. In recent times, I’ve developed a stronger allergy to chemicals used in tanning leather that lead to rather painful blisters on the hands, so I’ve returned to a renewed focus on wood working. I’ve discovered a new passion in wood turning, so that is my current focus.

To this day, I strive to support our community of artists through the sponsoring, teaching and display of works that are both inspired by history and direct reproduction attempts.
