THE DEADLINE TO DECLARE
INTENT HAS PASSED. Good luck to our competitors.
For all those who are
interested in entering the A&S championship at Embers and
Ambrosia, the deadline for your letter of intent has been extended
to 12th Night. Your rough draft of documentation due at Candlemas
to allow me to find judges knowledgeable in your entrys
This will be in the single
entry style, as we have had for the past several years, using the
Kingdom A&S judging sheets at the Baronial level. This allows
everyone to be familiar with the Kingdom format and with the
different forms (Process, Object, Performance, Research Paper) you
have a guideline of what things the judges will be looking for in
your presentation, display and documentation. You will be required
to have one item for this entry, having additional pieces to show
your skill or development of progress is helpful, but not
You will be asked about
techniques, sources, and the understanding you have on the
processes used for your entry. You will need to be able to discuss
the historical items your entry is based upon, and how closely your
final product mirrors those items. Knowledge of period correct
tools and materials helps, but is not necessary so long as you can
clearly explain why they are not used such as for financial
or health concerns (too costly or deadly like arsenic for
face powder are acceptable answers!).
Documentation for this
level of entry does not need to be of the college or professional
publication level, and you are encouraged to use notes for the
presentation at Embers and Ambrosia if that makes you feel more
confident. I will be happy to help you with working on
documentation for your item or work on practicing your
presentation. Just let me know in person, via a Messenger/PM, email
