This workshop will introduce beginners to the various different processes for laying a range of different metals, not just gold, for use with lettering, miniatures, paintings or on its own on. For those with some experience we will explore how to achieve different textures using contrasting mordants and debossing. Participants will produce a small project of their choice, whether a gilded initial, partly gilded painting or gold on a folded gift box.
Materials List All materials will be supplied by Josie Brown, at a cost of £7 per participant,
payable directly to her on the day.
Participants are welcome to bring any suitable materials they already have that they may wish to use.
