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, and create small projects to take home with them.
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 participants, so booking ahead is essential. Your £119 fee covers the full day-long workshop, all tools and materials (including gold leaf!), lunch and refreshment, and take-home projects.
£119 per person, including all materials and lunch.
