If you follow me on Instagram, you already have seen some of my photos and videos from the Turku Medieval Market, (Keskiaikaiset markkinat) showing the dyeing demonstration. It was really fun to watch, and I wanted to share some of the photos and video here too.
Today I’ll continue sharing highlights from my visit to the Turku Medieval Market, (Keskiaikaiset markkinat) in Turku, Finland.
There were a number of vendors at the market, demonstrations, and activities. One of the activities that was set up was the chance for people to try their hand at some block printing.
In June and July 2017 I was in Finland again (along with a side-trip to Estonia!). One of the highlights of my trip was a visit to the Turku Medieval Market, (Keskiaikaiset markkinat) – apparently the largest medieval market in Finland.
With the encouragement of readers on my Facebook page, I decided to take one of my Viking Age costumes to go explore the market on it’s first day. Over the next few posts I’ll share some of the demonstrations and market stalls at the market. If you’re coming to my blog long after I’ve posted, you can see all of these posts by reading the Turku Medieval Market tag!
I was so busy at Montengarde’s Twelfth Night (January 23, 2016) that I didn’t even bring my camera, but one of the guests brings his… and posted some photos online that are public viewing, so I thought I’d share them here! (Directly linked from his Flickr account, all copyright his – if he removes them in future, links will be broken.)
Fashion show contest
During court, I was super-excited to find out that I won the costume contest in the advanced category.
I feel kind of bad I haven’t shared this earlier, but at Silverwolf I was granted an Award of Arms from the King & Queen of Avacal. I guess the plan was to be awarded it at Dragonslayer, but after the crazy storm (and my hungry belly!) I left before court could get under way.
I was quite surprised… and the charter is very pretty 🙂 (& designed and painted by our Baroness!)
It explained why one of the heralds was asking me how to pronounce my persona’s byname!
