Event description

Description

This new three-day Workshop introduces students to the essential methods and techniques of gold leaf restoration including the preparation and use of gesso putty for infilling, mould casting for the repair of broken or missing decorative elements and the basics of traditional water gilding, oil gilding, and toning. Students will also learn to create simple and attractive gilded bevel mats for picture framing using both the water gilding and mordant gilding methods as a way of gaining an understanding of these techniques which form the basis for restoration.

A fun and informative three days not to be missed! Materials, gold leaf, and use of studio tools included. Students will take home the project they gild in class with recipe handouts for making old world gilder's gesso and clay bole!

(Cancellation Policy: If student cancels class, a full credit, which does not expire and of same or equal value, will be provided for any available future class and any location. Full refund if instructor cancels class.
