Venue: Glasgow City Heritage Trust, 54 Bell Street, Glasgow G1 1LQ.
For millennia, gilding has been the crowning enrichment of architectural decoration. From stone, to plasterwork, to glass, it has enduringly been the ultimate expression of luxury and opulence in buildings. Led by Frank Carty of Artisan Artworks, participants will learn the technique of gilding on different surfaces. The morning will be spent on stone and plasterwork, and after lunch the afternoon session will focus on glass-gilding, including constructing and inking letters in the style of traditional signwriting.
