Principality of the Mists: Arts and Sciences
Mists A&S Competition/Display Schedule 2020
A/S Principality of the Mist Silver Muse competition “Arts and Science though the Ages”
Find your inner Muse, Early or Late! This year’s Mists A&S Silver Muse Competitions are moving through time, and expertise.
Each Mists event will have two competitions: One early period, one later period.
This will allow Artisans to grow a body of work that shows progression through both historical time, and their expertise growing over the years.
All Artists, Bards, Calligraphers, … , Natural Scientists, Poets, Rubricators, Singers, Troubadors (etc) are invited to pursue the arts by creating displays of their work and teaching and discussing the work, whether it is a material object, an intellectual one, or a story of history.
The Early time will be 8th Century
Later Period will be 13th Century
Please pick a time (and if needed or desired, a place) and bring your work! Create clothing, jewelry, stamping from the 8th century! Sing a song, show a jewel from the 13th! Brew an appropriate beverage or food! Share!
The Early time will be 9th Century
Later Period will be 14th century
Please teach us to sing a song from the 9th or make a weapon! Perhaps a simple cote pattern? Or how they made paint from rocks and plants ?
The Early time will be 10th Century
Later Period will be 15th Century
Teach us how to cure a headache ? Or how to lull a child to sleep with a Lullaby? Make a painting or a hat or gloves ? Show a tool they might have used to garden?
The Early time will be 11th Century
Later Period will be 16th Century
You could play a tune or create a necklace, teach us how to make some rings? Sing some chants or mead your way into our hearts!
We are encouraging our artisans to not only make things but teach how to make them (as well as this is also a part of the competition )
Documentation is required but don’t let that scare you away ( simple is all we ask but if you want to do more that’s wonderful ) (Help is available!)
Donations to largess are always appreciated as our gifts are always appreciated so much!
