Live from the West Kingdom, Collegium Occidentalis is back with In Person Classes. We will have three classrooms and four additional rooms for classes. We also have room on the field for heraldic voice classes, martial demonstrative classes, dance classes and a day long and a scribal arts workshop pavilion. (The field also includes a gazebo in case of inclement weather.) Sadly, we do not have access to the kitchen so there will be no hands-on cooking classes and no feast. This is a dry site.
