This workshop introduces students to the contemporary gilding technique. Participants prepare different material surfaces so that metal leaf can be applied and incorporated.

This workshop will introduce students to a contemporary gilding technique (the process of applying metal leaf to a surface). Participants will prepare different material surfaces (fabric, paper, wood) so that metal leaf can be applied and incorporated into visual compositions, as a jumping-off point for future explorations in their own art practices. A materials fee provides each student with his/her own take-home supplies to continue exploring the process after the duration of the workshop. This is an “all-levels” adult course that requires patience, focus and enthusiasm for experimenting with a contemporary take on a traditional art.
