My name is Maiosara Sauromatis.I am the current Minister of Arts and Sciences for the Barony of the Flame. My role is to promote, educate and encourage our members to recreate the culture of the middle ages. My personal interests within the Society include: sewing, illumination, weaving, and knitting. I especially love reading about ancient textiles.
In my mundane life I am a youth mentor.

What are the Arts and Sciences?

The Arts would include activities that are aesthetically based, such as:
  • Calligraphy, illumination, bead work, sewing, weaving, music, and dance.

Sciences could be listed to include things such as:
  • Armoring, brewing, vinting, lapidary, leatherwork, woodcarving and weapon making.

This is an very incomplete list and is only meant to suggest the scope of possibilities. I encourage those with questions/ideas/suggestions to contact me.

For information about Arts and Science please contact
Lady Maiosara Mistress of Arts and Sciences.
