Masterclass: The Glory of Gilding

Rob Oldfield, master gilder, explores the art of gilding and the magic of gold leaf by candlelight in the eighteenth-century house. This practical masterclass will introduce you to the different uses and traditional techniques of laying gold leaf. Under Rob’s tuition you will develop the skills to be confident in undertaking your own projects and bring the magic of gilding into your own home. By the conclusion participants will have their own gilded Christmas ornament inspired by Grinling Gibbons to take home. All materials for this masterclass are included, as well as a hearty Soup & Sandwich supper, wine and refreshments.
