Classes Offered

The Delightful Duo Largesse Contest is coming to Kingdom Arts & Sciences and Queen’s Rapier Championship 2024!

When: Saturday March 2
Where: Executive Center Lobby for easy voting throughout the day!
Time: TBD

Overview: Each entrant is asked to contribute two nearly identical handmade items which would not normally be donated as largesse due to cost, complexity, or time commitment. One of the two items will be kept by the Crown for gifting to fellow royals or to be used as prizes for other kingdom level contests, the second of the two items will be taken home by one of the other entrants as a prize. This means everyone who enters will go home with something fabulous! Each duo will be put on display Saturday and voted on by the populace during the day, granting the winner first choice of one of the other entries to take home. The order by which the rest of the entrants choose their prize item will be based on a blind drawing of names.


~ While it is not required that you declare your intention to enter ahead of time, it’s quite helpful to us if you do so that we can plan accordingly for set-up. Please Facebook Message Sibylla de Waryn or email when you’ve decided. Thank you and we look forward to seeing your entries!
