AEthelmearc War Practice to Feature Artists' Forum

This year's AEthelmearc War Practice at Cooper's Lake Campground (site of the Pennsic War) will feature an interactive A&S display where artisans may discuss their work. Master Huen writes:

The Artist's Forum at War Practice will be held in the Barn on Saturday from noon to 2 PM and is open to all individuals. Items will on display but will not be judged. All items, whether a work still in progress, a piece by a novice, or the work of an expert are welcomed and encouraged. Please come show off your stuff!

(For those who have not yet heard, War Practice Brunch is scheduled to be in the Barn from 8 AM until 11 AM and should not interfere with the Forum.)

A small prize will be awarded to the item deemed the "most popular" by the public; more info on this will follow.

Participants in the Forum may leave their item for display only, but are encouraged to stay and answer questions on their entry, pass out food or beverage samples, etc. It is hoped that such an interactive Forum will provide our artists the opportunity the share their knowledge and skills with the Kingdom on a wider level.

Experienced artists who will not be entering the Forum are asked to please attend & view the items on display, and offer your encouragement & advice to the novice participants present. The sharing & exchange of knowledge is one of our greatest assets, and we hope you will be able to use the Forum as a chance to meet many of your fellows and strengthen the Arts & Sciences in AEthelmearc.

THL Brion has honored us by agreeing to coordinate the Performing Arts aspects of the Forum. Currently, this is planned for the Bath House after Court.

Yours in Service,
