SCA Projects

These are projects that I have completed in the SCA.  When documentation is available, and complete, I will add it to each project.

Kingdom Arts and Sciences 2015

  • Alms Pouch embroidered in Brickstitch, with tabletwoven seams and fingerloop braided hanging cord
    • Entered in the Gleann Abhann Kingdom Arts & Sciences Championship (19 Sep 2015) in the accessories category
    • KA&S Documentation for the Alms Pouch
    • Scored a 20/20 in Textile – Accessories.
  • Seal tags – tabletwoven in doubleface technique
    • Entered in the Gleann Abhann Kingdom Arts & Sciences Championship (19 Sep 2015) in the woven textiles category
    • KA&S Documentation for the Seal Tags
    • Scored a 17/20 in Textile – Construction: partly a documentation error, in that the judging standards change between “recreating an extant” (where you are judged on how close you are) and “creating in the syle of an extant item” (where you are judged on both how you use the style, and how you adapted it for your ends.)
  • Celtic Knotwork
    • Celtic Knots Class Handout
    • Square dots: 4 per inch – used for practicing Celtic Knots
    • Square dots: 2 per inch – for the somewhat larger Celtic knots.  This size is suitable for use with regular sharpies.
    • A journal with many sample knots was entered in the Gleann Abhann Kingdom Arts & Sciences Championship (19 Sep 2015) in the SCA Life category
    • Scored 19/20 in SCA Life: this category does not count towards the Championship, but is intended for projects that enhance or enrich the SCA while not necessarily being perfectly period.   I enjoyed watching people flip through the journal of knots.
  • Research Paper which actually covered a number of math textbooks and how they evolved, as well as the art of book keeping.

Kingdom Arts and Sciences 2016

  • How to Choose an Entry – being a “Description of the process of choosing an entry, including the questions that need to be considered as the choice of item to be created is narrowed down to a final project”

  • Designing Patterns in 3/1 broken twill
    • Entered in the Gleann Abhann Kingdom Arts & Sciences Championship (2011) in the woven textiles category
