[ATL] A Gathering of Guilds

As Winter tightens its grip on the land, our attentions turn to the Arts and Sciences to occupy us indoors until the return of warmer weather. The Baron and Baroness of Lochmere invite the artisans of Atlantia and abroad to a Gathering of Guilds, and hope to encourage marvelous collaborations between the various arts. Their Excellencies will be choosing their Arts and Sciences Champion, and other displays, competitions, and classes will be organized. All are welcome to come, display their works, and mayhap learn a new skill!

Arts & Sciences Activities
In addition to the Baronial A&S Champion Competition, the six 'Great Guilds' will each be hosting displays, classes, and competitions. Each Guild has a Guild-Head. The 'Guilds' along with there leaders and some examples of the categories are:

  • Craftsman's Guild
    Lord Owen Trahern

  • Performance Arts
    Master Corun MacAnndra

  • Fiber Arts -
    Duchess Simone de Barjavel

  • Culinary & Medicinal Arts
    Lord Michel von Schonsee and Mistress Minowara Kiritsubo

  • Martial Arts
    Lord Edward de Clare

The theme for the Baronial A&S Championship is 'Cooperation Between the Guilds.' Any entry must be linked (even tenuously) to something done/used by a different 'Guild.' For example, a 'Gilded Arts' entry could be an illuminated piece of music for the 'Performance Arts'; a Craftsman could make a pell for the Martial Guild, etc.

A dayboard-style feast of several removes throughout the day will be served, and is included in the price of admission. The Head Cook is Mistress Eibhlin nic'Raghailligh; please contact her with dietary questions at Click to send e-mail to the event cook.
