River Haven Arts & Sciences Competitions.

The Baronial A&S competitions are open to any gentle in River Haven or Neighbouring groups.  Every 6 months the Barony sets A&S Competitions to encourage members to learn new skills or challenge themselves in areas they are passionate about.

Once competition category is set, people willing to enter will need to find a period item to suit the category.  Research this item, look into what materials and methods were use to produce this item.

We understand that not all period materials are available so modern versions of materials are able to be used.   We encourage entrants to be as period as possible but within their means.
