Southern Colorado features a rich heritage, tempered with pioneer spirit and ingenuity.

At the Southern Rockies Heritage School we will promote and preserve traditional knowledge, skills, technologies, crafts and art forms of the past and apply them to modern life.

If you’ve ever wondered how cheese is made, marveled at the skill of a blacksmith or felt the creative urge to work with leather, raise bees or make soap, we’ll have something for you.

Join us as we bridge the gap between functional crafts and creative arts, hands-on learning and fun.

We’ll invite neighbors to pass along skills that might otherwise be lost, as well as experts and instructors from afar to share their knowledge.

Southern Rockies Heritage School operates under the authority of Trinidad State Junior College and many classes will be held at Trinidad State’s Trinidad Campus.  Other venues will include Trinidad State’s Valley Campus in Alamosa.

Our Advisory Board includes Tom Perry, Jim Vigil, Meghan Harris Russell and Sheri Files.
