Many Arts & Science Displays and Competitions. Our competitions (using Kingdom Criteria) are as follow:

  • Mead Making – Since the Monks in Lindisfarne raised honey, and it is the time to celebrate we are having a mead making contest. The best 2 bottles are being served to TRM with the winners name prominently displayed on the bottles. Plus the winner gets a prize. (Hint: You will be able to make more mead.)

  • Saxon Clothing – Any gender Saxon clothing that would have been worn at the time. We have prizes of period equipment to enable you to continue to sew.

  • Saxon Cooking – Any Saxon or possibly Saxon dish using honey. Let your mind wonder to what could possibly be put together. (Yes, more prizes.)

During the day the upper floor will be set up like a monastery or as close to it as possible and you will be able to try your hand at a few different crafts that would have been available at the time. We currently have the following scheduled: Prayer Beads, Sprang, Spinning wool, Butter Churning, tablet weaving, needle making and possibly warp weighted loom. We will also have a Scriptorium going during the day by one of our own Monks. We would like to see the young ones involved. Some of what we make will go toward Largess. If you have any questions or have an Art or Science you would like to share please contact Lady Thora Sigurdsdottir at camyllia@gmail.com
