Collegium Occidentalis is comimg soon! Saturday, April 26 to be precise. Collegium will take place at the same site it did last spring: the Sierra Arden School, 890 Morse St., in Sacremento, CA.
Fun and challenging classes are planned! Here's just a few of the classes being offered:
- How to do a feast on a shoestring budget, by Mistress Rowan
- Tourney camping by John de la Torre
- Consorting 101 by Countess Etaine, and
- Classical Philosophy in the Renaissance by Barone Antonio (and I can say from experience that this Excellency's classes are always great! :-) )
A number of Her Majesty Mari's Queen's Artisans will also be sharing their research, including:
- Veronica da Lugano on the History and Performance of 3 John Dowland lute songs
- Flidais ni Eitigen on period bone artifacts
- Anna de Serra on Trionfi de Zuccharo (16th C sugarpaste sculpture)
- Leah Raedaelf of Pagham on period musical notation
- Ghislaine d'Auxerre on "Lot Books", and
- Kathryn de Langelia's research and experimentation with the needlework seen on the Elenor of Toledo dress (cutting edge research, folks!)
And much much more, including a scribal track!
Collegium is a fun event, filled with opportunites to share what
you've been working on to improve your SCA experiance. :-) Come,
play, and learn!
