Cornelia of Harford

Cornelia enjoys finger weaving and inkle-loom weaving. She also enjoys medieval illustration and has been practicing drawing large letters and accompanying decorative designs.

She used her loom to create a shoulder strap for a rabbit-skin pouch that she sewed together, and fastened with a leather toggle button. She entered this project into the kingdom arts & sciences competition and was chosen Youth Champion.

More recently, Cornelia participated as sous chef on the winning team for Cast Iron Chef IV and entered a medieval food dish into the Ice Dragon youth category, taking first place.

She was recognized for all of her Arts & Sciences activities with a Silver Sycamore in August, 2019.

In November, 2019, Cornelia was again named Æthelmearc Youth Arts & Sciences Champion for her entry of rabbit-fur-lined mittens, made from rabbit hides she tanned and stitched to leather outer layers. She also received the Queen’s Inspiration for her achievements that day.

Order of the Silver Sycamore badge: Fieldless, three sycamore leaves conjoined argent. Award of the Golden Escarbuncle (Service) badge: Fieldless, On a goutte de sang an escarbuncle Or.
