A special Winter weekend of Gold Leaf Gilding classes are scheduled at Art Sanctuary in beautiful Kentucky! Join us for one or both days as we explore a variety of methods of gilding - Oil Gilding, Traditional Water Gilding, water-based emulsion, Kölner 'Instacoll' mordant from Germany, as well as gesso and clay bole, composition and aluminum leaf, and genuine 23k gold. All levels including Beginners are welcome.  Suitable for Fine Artists, Pictureframers and furnituremakers, and those who simply have always wanted to explore a hands-on approach to this beautiful and mysterious centuries-old art. All materials provided with class projects to take home.

For our friends north of the border and for those ready for an early Spring adventure we are offering a full week of intensive study including the popular three-day Traditional Water Gilding class directly followed by a two-day study of gold leaf restoration. Learn the traditional method of preparing and applying rabbit-skin glue-based gesso and clay bole grounds, applying 23kt gold leaf, burnishing and toning on our first three days. The focus during the next two days will be on restoring gilded wood as applied on picture frames, furniture, and decorative objects. An introductory approach towards restoration we explore the differences between water and oil gilding; determining  genuine gold and silver leaf, brass and aluminum, and bronze powders; creating simple moulds and castings for ornament repair; gesso putty for repairs; in-gilding and blending for restorative leafing. All within the beautiful surroundings of Owen Sound and the intriguing setting of the art conservation studio of Host Amber Hardwood and Georgian Bay Art Conservation!
