Gilding and Gold-Leaf Workshop

About Gilding and Gold-Leaf Workshop

For millennia, gilding has been the crowning enrichment of architectural decoration. From stone, to plasterwork, to glass, it has enduringly been the ultimate expression of luxury and opulence in buildings.

Led by Frank Carty of Artisan Artworks, participants will learn the technique of gilding on different surfaces, making small projects to take home. The morning will be spent on stone and plasterwork, and after lunch the afternoon session will focus on glass-gilding, including constructing and inking letters in the style of traditional signwriting.

Space is limited to 10 (10) participants, so booking ahead is essential. Your £119 fee covers the full day-long workshop, all tools and materials (including gold leaf!), and lunch and refreshment.

£119, including all materials and lunch.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Gilding and Gold-Leaf Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
