Live Online Gilding Short-Course October
(Private Dates Available)
Learn from gilders the 3 main techniques and gain the knowledge and experience to successfully apply precious leaf, such as gold leaf, to objects and picture frames.
This course will be a combination of demonstration, teaching, practice with teacher support and guided work on set projects. As we are picture frame makers by trade, we will be teaching gilding using the tools and materials familiar to us and students will come away with 3 small picture frames that they have gilded themselves.
This doesn't mean that students cannot learn how to gild objects as well as picture frames; there will be plenty of time to talk about other types of gilding applications.
All tools and materials will be supplied and students will be provided with a gilders tool-pack to continue the rewarding and tricky practice of gilding after the course is completed.
What you will learn
- Learn oil-gilding, acrylic-gilding and the art of traditional water-gilding
What you will get
- Students will learn using a variety of materials and tools and will come away from the course with 3 gilded picture frames to keep
What to bring
- Students do not need to bring anything other than lunch (there will be a 1 hour lunch break each day)
What to wear
Please wear closed-toe shoes and clothing that can get marked
Beginner and intermediate level of experience is perfect for this course
We are artisan picture and gallery frame makers, carvers and gilders sharing our knowledge to a diverse crowd of talented and inquiring makers and artists. We run gilding courses sporadically throughout the year and teach the traditional art of water-gilding, using precious leaf such as white gold, 22K and 23K gold leaf.
