If you attended the amazing Illuminated Letters class with Barbara Calzolari and Tiziana Gironi, then you've been introduced to the gorgeous art of gilding and have met Kaori Ogawa, the mad and wonderful alchemist and experienced gilder with all things metallic! :)
I think I speak for everyone in that class--that gilding is an amazing craft that we'd all LOVE to explore further!! And Kaori has generously offered her time and expertise to guide us through a structured, but informal, day of gilding discovery!
We will create a small project or two together under her guidance. Not only will the day be fun and informal but it will also give you all sorts of skills to practice once you return home. Think of all the fun blingy things you can create for the holidays!!
Kaori has also started importing a wide range of amazing gilding goodies from Japan that are only available through her (in the US). She will offer a pop-up shop onsite so you can purchase these wonderful gilding goodies to take home for beginning your path onto the world of gilding you can stock up with the finest.
Price for the class is a small donation to Kaori to compensate for her time and teaching, as well as the materials she will be putting together for you so you have all you need to finish a project. (gold leaf, powder gold, a few types of sizing).
We can blast some holiday music, drink some cider and have a really fun day together!! Hope you can join us!!
