Manuscript guilding workshop

Saturday, Mar 23, 2013 8:30a to 4:30p

Learn the technique of gilding on paper or vellum and the use of gouache to create beautiful artwork reminiscent of the medieval manuscripts. Karat gold leaf is applied to gesso and burnished to create a brilliant “illumination” of the page.

Traditionally, this technique is used in conjunction with calligraphy and hand lettering to create beautiful, museum-quality manuscripts and scrolls. However, it is also a stand-alone art form used without words to create beautiful gilded images.
