The A&S 50 Challenge involves doing 50 things in the Arts and Sciences between May 1st AS 42/2007 and May 1st AS 50/2015, in honor of the SCA’s 50th Birthday . The Challenge is a chance to develop skills and learn more about what interests you in a non-competitive, community-based environment. YOU decide what you want to do over the eight year span, and get encouragement from the Challenge Community along the way.
There are three types of Challenges, I have decided to do one of each. For more information about A&S50, please visit http://artsandsciences50.org
The Depth Challenge –
*50 of any one type of thing, in order to push your skills and knowledge to new levels- I am making 50 TYPES of Cordials that could be historically correct ( so basically no chocolate or modern day cordials). See the List Here
The Breadth Challenge –
*do/make/learn 50 new and different things (how new, and how different is up to you/your group)- I am making 50 different hoods, hats or head coverings..some are repeats to hone my skill, but many are new types of a variant to learn at least 1 new technique. Here is the album of completed hoods & hats. See the List Here
The Persona Challenge –
*making/learning 50 different things that your persona would know, have, or know how to do- I am answering 50 different persona questions to get a better idea of what or who my persona would have been in period. Some of these come with something to make, some just come with a whole lot of research.
