Schedule and Activities

See the class schedule below. Class descriptions are available on the Kingdom website Events page for this event.

We are also hosting a swap meet for garb, equipment, and armor, so take a look through your SCA closet as we approach the summer season and see what you no longer need.

The social room has some space to spread out, so bring a current project and play and socialize! There will be a painting table (materials provided) and a general A&S crafts table, and we hope to have a table set aside for your larger projects like cutting out a dress.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This site does not allow alcohol or weapons of ANY kind. All rattan and steel must be left in the car, and booze should be left at home. Robinswood Park is right next door if folks want to step out for a bit to discuss weapons or demonstrate fighting techniques.

What are Colloquiums?

Colloquiums are a series of gatherings to share knowledge about the SCA and the many Arts, Sciences & Skills relevant to the SCA for both new folks and long-time participants.  These gatherings include classes, open project space, and lots of fun and socializing.

These activities are sponsored by the Barony of Madrone and the Canton of Porte de l’Eau.

Please remember this site does not allow weapons of ANY kind.  Robinswood Park is right next door if folks want to step out for a bit to discuss weapon construction or demonstrate a fighting technique.
