Arts & Science Champions


The role of the Baronial champions is to inspire others in the Barony to excel in their chosen endeavour, be it martial (archery, armoured combat, unarmoured combat, equestrian).

2018-2019 Dame Miriam Galbraith

 An open arts and sciences display will be held where you bring whatever projects you have been working on in the past year (finished or unfinished is welcome). Many diverse works were presented, from spoken word, curved shields, embroidery, costuming and painting. But ultimately it was once again the entrant of a woven garment that took the victory by Dame Miriam.

2017-2018 Isaelfr Hilditonn Heilvesdottir

Isaelfr Hilditonn Heilvesdottir is the Barony of Krae Glas’ current Arts and Sciences Champion. Isaelfr created a 10th century Nordic dress, by taking the wool of Icelandic sheep, dying it with wode, spinning it, weaving it, then stitching that into a dress. She also dyed a separate batch of wool in a contrasting peach colour using period dyes, and wove that to make the braid along the top of the dress. She made the brooches by her own hand, and accompanied these with two strings of lampwork beads.
