Rising Stone Populous Choice Arts & Science Faire
The Populous A&S Faire is open to anyone who wishes to display an Arts & Science project in any of the specified categories including the SCA Life category.
SCA Life – Items that, while not documentable to our period, enhance the overall experience of the SCA. Some examples would be a heraldic cooler cover, tissue paper stained glass windows, or a fighter waterer disguised as a duck; the limit is your imagination.
Documentation is not required to participate in this Faire but entrants may include it along with their entry. Judging is done by the Populous using the “Bead in a cup” method. The winner of the Populous Choice will be recognized in Court.
The Meridies Arts & Sciences webpage has more information about A&S categories.
Regional Arts & Science Faire
Entering a Kingdom Arts & Sciences Regional Faire is a good opportunity for artisans to receive valuable feedback about their craft and is an excellent chance for artisans to meet others who practice the same craft and to share ideas.
