Competition 3 - Largesse Competition for Holiday Faire 2018
Sponsored by Countess Rowan Berran McDowell
In 1221 the Venetians entered into a trade agreement with Mongolia in order to take full advantage of the many treasures passing along the Silk Road and to corner control of how those goods entered the European trade markets. Venice could boast of a wealth luxury goods as well as items you would find in any home . The markets were bursting with salt and grains, like millet and wheat, to porcelain dishware, glassware, pearls, all kinds of gems, mineral dyes- like Indigo, peacock feathers, spices, and delicious amounts of textiles such as silks, cottons and brocades from Egypt, Asia Minor and the Far East.
12th Night in Atlantia will be all about Venice. This Largesse Competition will celebrate the creativity and generosity of her people which can only be equaled historically by the creativity and generosity of the Serene City herself.
As a Patroness of the Arts, I, “Contessa” Rowan Berran McDowell, founder of Largesse Makers of Atlantia, challenge all Artisans of Atlantia to join together and provide an Ocean of Largesse (keeping the arts and wares of Venice in mind) so that we may provide Their Majesties Amos and Kara with works of our hands to fill Their coffers and enable Them to provide lavishly for the subjects of Their Kingdom who do good works during Their Reign and especially for Atlantia’s 12th Night Celebration.
To enter the competition please make 10 items per entry keeping in mind the theme for 12th Night. You may enter more then once. We will be using the usual A&S Competition Entry Form so please take the time fill it out. Please have your entries in place by no later then 12 Noon. Judging will take place in the late afternoon. First Place will win a $50 Gift Card from Michaels. 2nd Place will receive a $25 Gift Card from Michaels and 3rd Place will receive a $10 Gift Card from Michaels. All of the entries for the competition will become Largesse for Their Majesties.
Open Display - As usual there will be an open display for those who wish to simply show what they have been working on rather than entering a competition. Documentation is encouraged, but not required.
Yours in Service,
Lady Failenn Chu ingen ui Fhaelain
