Steppes Artisan XX

Pay heed all artisans of Ansteorra and the Known World! Her Excellency Katheryn Cunningghame invites you to enjoy a day of fun, learning and outstanding displays of the arts as we hold our 20th competition to name the next Steppes Artisan.

Steppes Artisan is a body of work competition. This means that you are not limited in number by what you display, but we suggest that you bring examples of your best work and display it in a pleasing manner. No research papers, please. Alcohol judging will take place off-site due to site restrictions.

This year we are also offering a Youth Artisan competition for all ages. Both the Steppes Minister of Children and the Baroness will pick their favorites.

Even if you are not displaying or viewing, we are offering classes in a variety of subjects. For more information on teaching a class, please contact the class coordinator Lady Elinor Salter at Class information will be made available on the event website.

Other offerings will include a special corner for our youth and a period gaming area for all ages. Merchanting space is available - please contact Rebbe Hadassah Sarai bas Yossi for more information.

A sideboard lunch will be included in your site fee. We are having a potluck dessert table, so please bring something to share if you are able. Dinner will be off-site at your pleasure (maps to local restaurants will be made available at gate).
