Spring has melted the winter snows and has started to warm body and soul. What a better time is there to travel to the ancient Barony of Loch Salann to share your knowledge and learn a new skill at Southern Collegium!
This year we will again feature many classes for all skill levels and interests. Whether you want to learn new sewing skills, fighting ability or learn from the many experts we have in the Kingdom about historical subjects there will be something for you. We will have an extra focus this year on the "virtues of a peer" as given by SCA Corpora. We will have classes focusing on dancing, games, heraldry, illumination and much more.
We are excited to announce we will be joined by the talented and knowledgeable Baron Gwylym ab Owain Tatershal of Atenveldt. Baron Gwylym is the Premiere of the Order of the White Scarf in the SCA. Mundanely he is the advisor and primary instructor for the Fencing Club at Northern Arizona University. Baron Gwylym began fencing in 1974 under the tutelage of Instructor Silverberg at the State University College at Buffalo, New York and Master Bella of Hamilton, Ontario. Baron Gwylym has taught classes on rapier and other western martial arts topics throughout the US, Canada and in Europe. He is also completing the fourth edition of his book Art of Defense, a manual on the use of the rapier. Mr. Wilson works as an applied Anthropologist at Northern Arizona University.
