Gold leaf gilding workshop
This workshop you will learn the ancient decorative technique of gilding and take home the work you made!
You will be shown the step-by-step methods and techniques used in this amazing craft.
What is gilding?
The term gilding covers a number of decorative techniques for applying fine gold leaf or powder to solid surfaces such as wood, stone, or metal to give a thin coating of gold. A gilded object is described as “gilt”.
Learn how to turn an old boring looking object into an interesting piece. Make things gold and precious!!
Each participant will learn how to use mixtion, how to apply gold leaf onto provided objects and how to protect the gilt from external factors.
We will provide objects – boxes, frames, vases, small objects – made of wood. Participants can also bring their own objects to work on.
Participants should wear comfortable clothes that they are not afraid to get dirty, wearing an apron is also advised.
