Known World Arts & Sciences Display
and Youth Arts & Sciences Display
Time to be announced!
A&S Display Coordinator
Lady Adele Lochlane
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

- 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 6 ft wide space per person (not per item). If you wish to bring alternative display items (stand, additional table, etc,) please let me know.

- 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
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'd welcome you for the full four hours; a two hour shift would also help. Let us know what you can do and we'll work with you.
- Never consulted before and want to learn? Let us know. You can be a shadow consultant. 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 us. (please sign up in advance).
