Æthelmearc A&S Faire 2017

A sample imageOn May 6th, the Shire of Nithgaard will host the second Æthelmearc Arts & Sciences Faire. This will be a day to celebrate the artisans of Sylvan Æthelmearc. We will have room for all who choose to do so to display their works.

The A&S Faire webspage can be found at http://aeans.aethelmearc.org/ans_faire/.

We will also be running the second annual Queen’s Prize Tourney, for those who hold a Grant of Arms level award or lower in the Arts & Sciences. The tourney, at which there is no winner and which has no scores, those who enter will receive advice from members of the Order of Laurel and the Order of the Fleur. It is our hope that the Queen’s Prize Tourney will give these artisans the opportunity to both learn and teach, and will give the Kingdom an opportunity to see their work. Each entrant is required to be sponsored by a member of the Laurel or the Fleur. Each entrant is required to be present at the event. Each sponsor is asked to provide a small thank you gift to each of the entrants he or she sponsors.

We will need advisors (previously called “judges”) for the QPT. Advisors must be Fleurs or Laurels and are expected to spend the better part of the day in face-to-face advising of the entrants. You can sign up to be awn advisor at the A&S Faire website.

For those of a more martial inclination, there will be outside areas available for fighting and fencing during the day.

On this page, you will find links to the following things:

  1. the event announcement
  2. an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) sheet concerning the event and Queen’s Prize Tourney
  3. registration forms for both Entrants and Sponsors in the Queen’s Prize Tourney
  4. a form for Entrants seeking Sponsors to sponsor them
  5. a form for Sponsors seeking Entrants to sponsor

We hope to see many of you at the A&S Faire!

In service,
Fridrikr & Orianna, Kingdom Ministers of Arts & Sciences
