Arts and Sciences Display
Known World Arts & Sciences Display / Youth Arts & Sciences Display
Come and be part of the awesome display of craftsmanship from the Known World!
Pennsic 50 brings the 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!
I look forward to seeing you and your works.
Lady Adele Lochlane

The A&S Consultation Table is a chance for artisans to voluntarily request rigorous feedback
to help them improve in their art. The focus of this feedback is on extensive research,
historical understanding, and exemplary execution. These are all things that are important at
A&S Championship competitions but also other activities throughout the Society, such as
displays and other personal projects. Even if you never plan to enter A&S competitions you
can use this table as an opportunity for feedback.
Artisans: You have the option of signing up for voluntary constructive feedback at the A&S
Consultation Tables after you have gone through the registration table. This is in addition to
your other A&S Display activities and is no way required.
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.
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.
Consultants: We also welcome volunteer consultants. Want to help? Let us know! You are
the ones who are going to help make the A&S Consultation Tables successful.
We would welcome you for the full four hours; a two hour shift would also help. Let us
know what you can do and we will work with you.
Never consulted before and want to learn? Let us know. You can be a shadow
consultant. We would welcome the company.
We also hope that this will make the judging experience more constructive and more
