Competition One - A Viking We Will Go
A competition for Viking themed Arts and Sciences! Know a craft that has been around since the age of the Danes? Made something in the style of something pillaged during the Viking raids? Sewn something that would adorned either side of the raids? Bring it to Holiday Faire! This year's theme is A Viking We Will Go! Anything from 790 A.D. up to and including 1066 A.D. from either the cultures that went a viking or the cultures that were pillaged will be accepted. Documentation is important, even if it is only an EZ-doc (however, the better your documentation, the better your points in that category!). Show us what you know -and- what you can do!
Competition Two - Pretty Little Pincushion
Announcing the Pretty Little Pincushion Competition sponsored by Lady Amie Sparrow! Create a pincushion that is creative and pretty! Your inspiration can be anything from 600-1600 A.D. Your entry does not have to be historically accurate…this is just historically inspired. Documentation is not required, but I’d love to see an image of the work that inspired you. This is a judge’s choice competition. There won’t be any judging forms. So create something fun and inspiring. The prize is a sewing box of sewing tools.
Competition Three - Scroll Blank
Come one, come all intrepid illuminators! Regardless of your preference for gouache, acrylic, or period pigments made with glair! Whether your surface is made from the hide of an animal or the flesh of the tree! Let us see what you can do! Any period from 600-1600 A.D. only 1 blank per person though please. Documentation is nice, but not required. Blanks will be donated to the Scrivener Royal of that reign.
