      Good luck in your new hobby!! I put out my display of 114 in 50 pewter entries this year at Uprising, including two larger constructed vessels. I have mostly been sending my apprentices out to teach of late and one, Countess Clare de Lacy, is likely at least partly to blame for your new time suck. :) Please let me know if there is anything that I can help with, be it sources, documentation, supplies or troubleshooting.

I was introduced to the art of pewter casting just a couple weeks ago at an A&S workshop, and I found it absolutely delightful. It will take me a bit to get all the materials together to be able to do soapstone carving and pewter casting at my own home, but I am confident I will be able to create 50 pieces in the remaining time. I plan to draw inspiration from historic pieces, although I expect that most of the designs will not be reproductions. A great many will likely feature Celtic knotwork.

      plates, bowls, and cups.

      Hi All,

      Thank you for the warm welcome. I am replying to multiple people in one post, rather than multiple small posts.

      Hillary - Ansteorra: Thank you for the suggestion. I haven't looked into the specifics of how to do it yet, and probably won't until I have a number of successful casts under my belt, but I was thinking that soldering would be worthwhile to be able to create multi-part items, or to bend and seal circular items like rings. It's definitely another aspect to investigate down the road!

      Madame du Pont: Would you mind posting a link to the FB group? The only one I found searching was specifically for personas. Is there another one? So far the groups I've seen with the most postings for the A&S50 are the Artisans of the Society for Creative Anachronism group and the SCA Arts and Sciences group.

      Giliana Attewatyr: I would actually be grateful for any suggestions on documentation or supplies. At the moment I don't have any supplies, and I'm figuring it will be about two months before I have everything together. I have several places bookmarked for pewter and soapstone, but really I need everything. I'd be grateful for any suggestions on your favorite sources on materials and tools.

      As for documentation, I don't have any reference books or materials yet, and a couple forays into internet searching have turned up very little. I haven't figured out an effective search term yet. If you have any books, web sites, or other resources to recommend, I'd be most thankful. :)

      I don't have any troubleshooting questions yet, but once I get going with the challenge I'm sure I will.

      Thank you,
      Sidney Eileen

      Cat, the stuff in your second email sounds workable to me. Perhaps, though,
      we could ask participants to bring their own bowl for tokens and notebook?
      It could help keep costs down.
      I have found (through doing various A&S displays) that some people really
      want to be told *exactly* how much space they have. Maybe you could come up
      with a "standard space" -- maybe 1/2 of an 6-foot table? Anyone needing
      more than that would go into the "large display" category.

      Can I make a plea on behalf of the bards? Can a corner of the room be set
      aside for bards to do a 10-min. set to represent their Challenge? Music and
      storytelling might also pull folks into the display room.

      Thanks for great ideas, everyone!

      AS50 celebrations
      Thu Jul 18, 2013 11:25 pm (PDT) . Posted by:
      "katherine kerr" vickikatherine
      Hi folks,

      Just back from our last trip and thinking about the next one...

      Do we have any set dates for specific AS50 displays in mainland Known World?

      I'm figuring that the 50YC celebrations are June 2016 (actually AS51); someone mentioned
      doing something at Pennsic in AS50 itself (August 2015).

      At this stage, it looks more likely I'll hit the mainland in AS52, as there's a total solar exclipse
      across the States that year which could be tagged onto a Pennsic visit.

      Cheers,
      katherine
