Really enjoyed this lovely and very affordable evening. Brigitte is a caring host and was so enthusiastic to introduce us to the world of gilding. Highly recommended!

In this fun introduction to gilding, we learned to apply size, gold leaf and shellac to a beautiful seashell, and edible gold leaf to biscuits. The teacher, Brigitte is an absolute legend. She is so warm, humorous and knowledgeable and passionate about her craft and passing on her knowledge to future generations. This is a fun workshop. Worth attending just to spend time with Brigitte, who is something of a national treasure. The bonus - you learn a wonderful skill. And then there's chocolate biscuits. And wine. It's excellent value. Highly recommended.
