An annual Artisan Showcase is held at Estrella War, to provide a setting where artisans can sit with medieval style works they have completed or have in progress, and discuss those pieces with SCA Peers and populace from many SCA Kingdoms. The event is intended to invite questions, advice, commentary and interaction between Peers, populace and artisans in a relaxed, social environment.
Classes will be offered from Tuesday through Saturday. Sign up for classes begin at 8AM on the day the class is offered, on a first come first served basis. Classes are open to any attendees at Estrella war.
Interactive Arts & Sciences Demonstrations
Estrella War for the third year will offer Arts & Science Demonstrations, conducted in three-hour blocks. What is new is that the A&S demos will be held in Town Square, where they can be readily observed.
This is a truly unique opportunity to not only observe, but also engage in the art/science form being demonstrated. Imagine you receiving hands on experience guided by highly skilled artisans. Nothing gives you an appreciation for an art or science more than exposure and practice for yourself.
It is also a great tool for artisans who frequently serve as a judge for their kingdom arts and sciences competitions, to get some in-depth, one on one time with a subject matter expert.
We are strongly encouraging artisans from all over the Known World to come and share their store of knowledge and passion with all those who are attending the Estrella War.
The Estrella War Arts & Sciences Competition is an inter-kingdom competition held to allow artisans compete and receive feedback about their work from an inter-kingdom judging team. Competitors are not declaring for a side but enter the competition for the individual glory. The winner of each category will be declared the Estrella War Arts & Sciences Champion for their area.
This is to get more Youth involved with arts and sciences. The ages that can compete are from eleven years of age to 17 years of age and only one entry per youth. All Youth A&S Competition Rules are on Kingdom of Atenveldt Arts & Sciences.
