For thousands of years, magicians have been developing techniques to deceive the senses,
and dazzle the imagination. To protect these secrets we have a strict code, and tight
networks of communication for discussing methodology. Many practitioners have gone their
entire careers without sharing their means, no matter the sum offered. Some have even
died during performance, taking their secrets with them to the grave.

The Wand King is presenting a two day workshop offering secrets, supplies, and personal
instruction in the techniques of sleight of hand, misdirection, and trickery. This two day
seminar will teach you not only the methods of magic, but principles, history, and
showmanship. Embrace an age old tradition of mystery, and step beyond the veil of
perception, with the Miracle Majesty Workshop.
