Join us for a delightful overnight trip to the Big Apple! A visit to The Morgan is reason enough to make the trip, but the exhibition, “Medieval Monsters: Terrors, Aliens, Wonders” promises to entertain, delight, and give us a brief view into the medieval mindset. In addition to the Medieval Monsters exhibit, there will be an exhibit on handwriting, which is a nice complement to our calligraphic interests!

The trip includes round-trip Amtrak train from Boston to New York City, a visit to the “Medieval Monsters” exhibit at The Morgan Library, a gallery talk, a visit to a second exhibition, “The Magic of Handwriting,” and one night’s accommodations in New York City.

The pricing for this adventure is as follows:
– Single Occupancy: $750
– Double Occupancy: $650 per person

Payment in full is due by July 15. Buttons to make your payment via PayPal are below.

A Travel Adventure to Paris and the South of France!

This will be a wonderful, exciting trip! We’ll fly together from Boston, Massachusetts to Paris and then spend the next three days in Paris visiting museums, shops, restaurants, and soaking up that glorious French culture.

After that, we’ll travel via TGV (fast train) to the town of Mandelieu in the south of France. We will stay in the 13th-century Château de la Napoule, situated directly on the Mediterranean, and live as artists in residence for a week before returning to Boston.

Studio Instruction

We’ll spend five mornings in total in the studio where Maryanne Grebenstein, Lead Designer at The Abbey Studio, will teach manuscript gilding and calligraphy. All levels of experience are welcome, and instruction will be customized to your level of expertise. Students in the past have found this environment to be open and stimulating, and have enjoyed the camaraderie and the friendships they’ve developed.

Afternoons Spent Sightseeing

After our lunch break, you can choose how to spend the afternoon: The studio will remain open for independent work time, or you can explore the surrounding area. You can join a group going with Maryanne on selected adventures, or go off on your own. The Château is across the street from a nice little train station where we can pick up the train traveling along the coast to Monte Carlo, Nice, Cannes, Antibes, San Tropez, and the adorable town of Mandelieu, as well as Ventimiglia, Italy, and many other lovely places, all within a 5- to 40-minute train ride.

Check It Out

We’ve posted some wonderful resources about the fascinating and inspiring La Napoule area. Download a slide show of photos assembled by the Château de La Napoule here. (You’ll need Microsoft PowerPoint, and it can take a couple of minutes to load, but the results are worth it.) You can also access photos of a previous Abbey Studio trip to La Napoule from The Abbey Studio website here, and you can read two of our blogs about Paris and La Napoule here and here.
