Once again, there will be a Sunday morning Artisan's Display at March Crown, in
and around the Arts and Sciences pavilion. This is not a competition; this is
a chance for you to display your work (and works in progress) and to schmooze
with other artisans of the kingdom. Artisans of all levels are welcome to
participate. Bring your projects and your questions, show off your work and
take the opportunity to see what others are working on.
We should also have space available for those who would like to demonstrate
their arts -- last time we had glass-bead makers and fabric painters and
cookers-over-fire -- so if you have a setup that's event-friendly, please
consider giving us a demonstration of your craft!
If you leave items for a static display, please be sure they are marked with
your name and contact info. Documentation is not required, but is recommended.
A handout with a description of your item, and how you made it is always
appreciated by the people who stop by for a look. Notepads and pencils will be
provided to exchange contact information or leave questions or comments, and
personal tokens are encouraged. They don't need to be fancy -- beads or
tassels or baggies of cookies are all equally appreciated.
The display area will be open at 9:00 a.m. for setup, and the display will run
from 10:00 a.m. to noon. And don't forget there will be plenty of other
activities planned for Sunday morning, including the Grand Palio and the
If you'd like to display your works, please contact me and let me know how much
space you think you'll need, and if you have any special requirements. You may
want to consider how to protect your work if it is especially fragile.
Finally, with the gracious permission of the Kingdom Arts & Science ministers, I
will continue to set up these Artisan's Displays at other kingdom events
throughout the year. So even if you're not ready to display your work at March
Crown, you'll have the opportunity to do so at least at Beltane, June Crown,
Purg and October Crown. Watch this space for further details.
Please forward this message to other lists as appropriate.
