What is DWASE?

DWASE is a Drachenwald version of the Noblese Largesse project created by Konstantia Kaloethina and Juliana della Renna. In each exchange, artisans sign up by filling out a questionnaire about their persona, interests, and preferences. Once sign-up is complete, each artisan receives the answers of someone else, and gets to make a gift for them! Whatever they want, with the constraint that the total cost of materials does not exceed 25EUR or equivalent (not counting the cost of posting the gift to the recipient). In general, artisans have about 5 months from receiving their recipient's info to when the gift must be delivered.

We have a Facebook Group and a mailing list. This blog our "public" face, and also our historical archive.
