Cynnabar University and Showcase


Beyond the Tower


We know that you're itching for meetings, classes, practices and more! While we know it's not enough, we're hoping it will help take away from the blues.

Due to the situation with COVID-19, we understand that during this time we need to find other ways to connect with each other. Your Chatelaine, Social Media, Herald, Webminister,  Arts and Science, Armored Combat, and Rapier Marshals have pulled together to create a program that we are very excited to get started! Their Excellencies, Seneschal, and Exchequer have all been contacted and support the Barony in this endeavor. 

A few things to note:

  • There will be support for Zoom for those who need it. It can be used on phone, tablet, laptop, or PC, but is easiest to use on a laptop or PC with webcam.
  • We will continue to follow state and local ordinances.
  • Society policy does allow for officially-sanctioned online activities!

Cynnabar University

Cynnabar University will be available for classes every day of the week. 

This is your chance to host a formal class on a topic you'd like to share with others. While this can be pre-recorded, we do have a system to use so that your classes may be live! The Barony is currently subscribing to Zoom. Everyone who wants access to it, will have access to offer a class. You will be asked if you'd like to use Zoom when you submit your class. An officer will contact you about information regarding this through your preferred contact method.

Regardless if live or previously recorded, our current plan is to host classes at a specific time and release them at a later to-be-determined date. This is to encourage baronial participation and connection to attending Baronial meetups.

Links to the classes will be announced through the Baronial mailing list and on our Facebook group. You can also find information by clicking on a class listing in the calendar at the bottom of this page. In the bottom right hand corner you'll see a logo with a "+" sign and the words "Google Calendar" If you have a Gmail account, you can click this and it will add the calendar to your calendars so you don't have to check the site every time and can get up to date information quicker. Some classes may only be available through Facebook. 

Please sign up to teach a class now! You can do so by filling out the form located below.

Cynnabar Showcase

Cynnabar Showcase is less formal. These do not need to be signed up for. You are welcome to have them pre-recorded and uploaded. You can also use Facebook/YouTube to record and upload as well. Zoom will also be available if you sign up for the program.

Cynnabar Showcase offers other opportunities for groups to meet, such as Scribal days, Bardic Circles, and more. (like classes, we can work these on weekends if need be.)

Specific topics may be announced each day to encourage participation, but this does not restrict what you may present. We do encourage you use #CynnabarShowcase when posting so that everything gets linked into one spot!

Note: Most of this activity will be found on our Facebook group. You should be able to see the page but if you are not signed up on Facebook, you will either need to create an account or contact us via email at to have someone to submit your work there.
