Known World Arts & Sciences Display

Sunday, August 6, 2017
1:00 - 5:00 pm

Come and be part of the awesome display of craftsmanship from the Known World!

Pennsic 46 brings the 20th annual display of the talents & knowledge of the Known World's Artisans and Craftspeople. The variety and scope of work are always a wondrous spectacle of artistic talents and scientific skills.

The display is not a competition. Bring your completed items, works-in-progress, research, and discussion material so that you may share, inspire, and enrich our Society. See what others in your field are working on, discover a new passion, make new contacts, and most importantly, have fun!

Please see below for details on the A & S Consulting Tables, new this year.

I look forward to seeing you and your works.

Lady Adele Lochlane
A&S Display Coordinator

Display Rules

  • Space is divided by Kingdom, allowing the Royalty, Peers, and Populace to see the efforts of their Craftspeople more easily.
  • Only tables & benches will be provided. Please bring your own chair if you do not want to spend the day sharing a bench.
  • There is a limit of 3 ft wide space per person (not per item). If you wish to bring alternative display items (stand, additional table, etc,) please let me know.
  • If you have any special requirements of space, please describe it on your registration form, or contact me.
  • You are not required to be present with your items. If you can only attend for part of the day, please still bring your items to share. However, please have someone to watch your items when you cannot be there. We cannot watch all the items, and do not take responsibility for them.

A & S Consultation Tables


Entrants can voluntarily request feedback based on the higher degree of expectations that happen at more competitive levels.

The focus is on extensive research, historical understanding, and exemplary execution. These are all important for A & S Champions entries, but also for other activities throughout the Society. Even if you never plan to enter A & S competitions, you can use these tables as opportunities for feedback.

Entrants: After you have gone through the registration table, you may sign up at the A & S Consultation Tables for constructive feedback. (This is in addition to your other A & S Display activities and is no way required.)

  • You will not receive a score and there is nothing to win.
  • You will have a chance to talk to experienced judges and walk through their thought process as they examine your entry.
  • We can give you directed feedback and we can also walk you through example judging rubrics. It depends on what help you are requesting.
  • We will attempt to accommodate as many entries as possible. We will visit you at your table to view your display and talk to you. We can also work with you on scheduling a specific time.

Judges: We also welcome volunteer judges. Want to help? Let us know! It's you who will help make the A & S Consultation Tables successful.

  • We'd welcome you for the full four hours; two hour shifts would also help. Let us know what you can do and we'll work with you.
  • Never judged before and want to learn? Let us know. You can be a shadow judge. We'd welcome the company.
  • We also hope that this will make the judging experience more constructive and more enjoyable.
  • If you are interested in helping, please contact The Honorable Lady Kataryn Mercer.
