Event description

Description

Need more gold in your life? Roll up your sleeves, take a sip of 'gold' champagne, and get ready to learn the craft of gilding so you can make anything you own shine like Versailles.

Join New York Adventure Club for an interactive gilding workshop at Alloyed Arts, a full-service gold leaf studio specializing in decorative art & architectural installations.

Led by master gilder Matt Meyer, whose work can be seen at notable NYC locations including Eleven Madison Park and Tiffany & Co, this exclusive experience at the Alloyed Arts studio will include:


  • The 101 on gold leaf, from what it is, how it's made, and four primary methods of applying it to surfaces
  • A step-by-step demonstration of gilding techniques
  • Hands-on opportunities to create your own gilded objects on different surfaces including paper and glass, which you can take home at the end of the workshop
  • A glass of 'gold' champagne teeming with real (edible) gold flakes
  • Sweeping views of the NYC skyline from the fifth story studio


All experience levels are welcome!


See you there!


*The Alloyed Arts studio can only be accessed by several flights of stairs
