About the Course

A one day introduction to the technique of gilding on glass. Intended to familiarise you with the practice of gilding and etching a design onto glass.

During the day you will gild a 10x10cm coaster that you can take home at the end of the course.

You will learn how to:
prepare the glass
make a size for the gold application
cut and apply loose gold leaf onto the reverse of the glass
etch a design onto the glass
seal the gold with enamel

An amazing opportunity to learn new skills and understand this incredible art.

Suitable for all ages and abilities. No experience required. A fantastic group activity with friends.
