The Shire of Isles has a very flexible collegium site that allows for enthusiastic teachers throughout the kingdom to teach classes a little to messy, long, crude, or weird to fit in Collegium Caidis. We also have some less trashable rooms that are happy to accept classes of other sorts, and we're very happy to enjoy the wisdom of visiting teachers. So come join us for a day of crafts, culture, and camaraderie.
Following morning and afternoon classes, please stay for a simple feast (which will be included in the site fee) and Bardic Circle, to practice what you've learned, and make closer acquaintance with the other artisans of the Kingdom. There is no need to pre-register for the feast or classes. If you are traveling a long distance, and desire local lodging, please contact the Scheduling Regent.
Site, Directions, and Fees
Our site will be the College of Creative Studies at UC Santa Barbara, on UCen Rd, shown as Bldg. 494, in grid square F4 of this campus map. The site fee is $10 for members, $13 for non-members, and $5 for all children. Please note that dinner is included in the site fee! A $3 discount will be given to all instructors and volunteers who give up a class session to do so; make checks payable to SCA Inc./Shire of the Isles.
Those of you who have attended before know that parking can be a major headache at UCSB. We will have a parking director (look for garb) starting at 9:00 to help you find a space nearby and unload. On-campus weekend parking costs $3; pay the machine and put the permit in your car. Please avoid spaces marked "24 hrs Mon-Sun"; service and vendor spots ARE legal on weekends.
