Arts & Sciences Activities
Calling All Youth Artisans!
This year’s Harvest Day will include a Youth A&S contest! Entries will be divided into three age divisions, and a winner will be selected from each. There is no theme, and all entries are welcome!
- Items entered must be the entrant's own work. (Parent assistance is allowed, but should be limited.)
- Items should fit the SCA timeline (approx. 600-1600).
- Items entered should be on the tables for viewing by 11am on Saturday the 8th, and should remain on the table until an hour before court.
- Documentation is not required, but is welcome! Entries should be labeled.
- Winners will be decided by populace vote! All are encouraged to come and see what our young artisans have been working on!
This year, there will be an Artisans Area out on the grassy field, a short distance from the List Field for the Tournament of Chivalry. The artisans will be offering demonstrations of their arts, full classes on their activities, or individual instruction to all who might be interested. Any classes that are scheduled for a specific time will be listed in the site book and added to this web site as soon as they are identified.
All Artisans are invited to come and share their talents with their fellow craftsmen. Any and all of the populace are welcome to this enclave, and it is to be hoped that those like-minded folk will join together to bring excitement and energy to the gathering.
Tailor's Shop Display
THL Edyth Miller will be on site with a miniature version of her medieval tailor's workshop display. Stop by for a chat, and ask about the basics of late medieval hand sewing, how to make fabric buttons and buttonholes or eyelets, finishing garments, medieval sewing tools, or even to discuss making 14th and 15th century garments. Look for her blue tailor's scissors sign and scissors banner at the heavy list field, and stop by at any time!
