questions: Please email coordinator Victoria Lansford at  We have a few members who are willing to host.  If you need a place to stay, please email.  

Workshop description:  We will traverse no less than 1300 years in seeking to amalgamate illumination techniques from the Codex Aureus with designs from some of the greatest lettering artists of our day.  Techniques include gilding with 23k gold leaf, illumination on calfskin vellum, and more.  Reggie's workshops are jam packed with information and inspiration.  Don't miss this unique opportunity to study with a master.

About the Primitive to Modern:  For those of you who really wanted to take Reggie's second year long class but couldn't commit to the whole year, Reggie has made a very special offer to let people sign up for the remaining sessions a la carte.  

These sessions are project based and fairly contained so even if you haven't been in previous sessions with Reggie, you'll be able to do them and not be lost.

These means you get to learn incredibly cool techniques like gilding and illuminating on vellum and take a finished (or nearly finished) piece home!!!!

You may sign up for any of these workshops at this time.  We only have 4 spaces in each one.   Registration is first come first served.
