3-Day Gilding Workshop August 17-19, 2022

If you want to take both the Hand Lettering workshop and the Gilding workshop please pick the 7 day workshop. It will save you $100.




This introductory workshop is an opportunity to expand your skills by introducing the basics of gold leaf gilding for lettering and signs. Working on a number of parallel projects you’ll be exposed to techniques for gilding on glass and flat surfaces, with everything at a basic level to keep it simple and get you going with gold. You’ll be creating matt and shiny effects on glass, and experimenting with different burnishing techniques while receiving input on materials, preparation (including cleaning glass), making size, laying gold, burnishing, and backing up.


The workshop is designed for those new to gilding, or with a little previous experience working with gold leaf. You should have some basic signwriting brush skills already as these will not be taught, but if you’ve attended the lettering workshop above you’ll be fine. The class size will be kept small to allow plenty of individual support, and all participants will take away their work on pre-designed panels and glass pieces.

Workshop hours are from 9am - 4pm with an hour break for lunch.


When you purchase your reservation for the class you will get a PDF download with all the details about the workshop.
