Learn how to gold tool on a paper-covered book, to show how the medium is brought to life when it is applied to a three-dimensional object.

Using simple shaped hand finishing tools you will be taught two gold tooling techniques, giving you the opportunity to explore the creative possibilities of gold-tooled images on paper. You will be using gold leaf and B S Glaire for this course, which is designed to focus on ideas and technique in parallel.

You will need to bring a paper-covered book with you. It could be a full paper-covered book, with or without the use of adhesive, or it could with a quarter cloth or leather binding with paper sides

Foundation skills in gold tooling will be taught, making this course suitable for all levels. You will learn through demonstration, one-to-one tuition and group discussion.

The workshop will be conducted in English.

We all welcome you to a creative and intense week!
