Elfsea Artisan Competition

The Barony is calling on the Artisans of Ansteorra to help us celebrate Elfsea Artisan & Baronial College and Investiture by entering in the Artisan Competition.

Artisans may set up their displays from 8:00 am till 10:00 am. As we get closer to the event this time may be subject to change.

From Countess Deanna della Penna, the format for this year's Artisan Competition is

  • Have you ventured out of your comfort zone to create something? Have you developed a brand-new skill? Has a certain piece challenged you as an artist and forced you to grow?
  • Bring one piece, completed within the last year, and which incorporates the color "blue" for Elfsea, if possible.
  • Documentation is encouraged. In it, please additionally convey how this particular item has encouraged your personal growth as an artist.
  • We encourage participants to pre-register for the Artisan Competition. To pre-register, please send your SCA name, mundane name, and what you are entering to [javascript protected information] or message her on Facebook at Aaliz du Lac.

Elfsea Bard Competition

Elfsea is calling for the bards to gather, To entertain us with their tales of yore.
Elfsea is calling for the bards to gather,
To compete for the title of the Barony's Champion.
Yes, Elfsea is calling for the bards to gather,
And where shall they gather?
At Elfsea Baronial College, of course.

From Don Brian O'hUilliam, the format for this year's Bardic Competition is

  • First round: Period piece or period style. Documentation strongly encouraged.
  • Second round: A piece that honors Elfsea, Dragonsfire Tor, or any of its members. If you do not have a piece that quite fits that theme, then please present a piece honoring Ansteorra or its people.
  • If necessary, a final round of the top performers will be bard's choice.

  • The cheesecake must be homemade
