Like at Twelfth Night, I wasn’t able to take much in the way of photos at Avacal’s Coronation and the Kingdom Arts & Science Championships because I was swamped trying to do other things. Luckily, one of the local photographers (Beothuk)took MANY amazing photos, and published them publicly online.
All photos are direct links from his Flickr feed – if he removes them, they’ll break here. All copyright his.
For a project I’m working on for the SCA, I wanted to make a necklace, and as a stretch goal, decided that I’d like to make the pendants to go along with the necklace as well. This meant I needed to learn more about metal work!
I contacted an acquaintance from the SCA who does pewter work, and he offered to teach me!
The other day I sent in my intent to compete for the Kingdom of Avacal Arts & Sciences champion. I’m still really new to the SCA, so I don’t really think that I stand a big chance of winning (though I’m still going to try to work towards that!) but I’m more doing it for the experience, and because I think that if more people are active -that more people will see A&S as something fun and interesting to try, and to support!
