Seattle ~ Water Gilding Corbels: Architectural Gilding Class for Interiors | 3815 4th Ave NE | Monday, 20. April 2020

Water Gilding Corbels begins the new Architectural Gilding Class Series for Interiors   for two sessions in April and October, 2020! This beautiful traditional method of water gilding, traced back over several thousands of years, has been used for architectural embellishment in Cathedrals, Governmental Institutions, Palaces and exquisite residences throughout the centuries and remains the premium of decorative finishes. 
Water gilding is also the method used on frames, furniture, and many tempera painted and gilded wood panels including examples of 12th-18th c works of art in the museums of Florence and the Iconography of Byzantium. 
Join us for this special ten-day Intensive study in the gilding of the Corbel where students learn each step of the traditional water gilding method from preparing rabbit skin glue size, traditional gilder's gesso made from glue, calcium carbonate, and water, and red over yellow clay bole to laying genuine 23kt Italian Gold Leaf, burnishing, and antique toning. 
Tuition includes a beautiful acanthus leaf woodcarved Corbel, two books of gold leaf, materials, and use of all the studio gilding tools. (No Eventbrite ticket fees as these are absorbed by the Gilding Studio.)
Each day of study will have a central focus of study to better understand this medieval process with each student gilding their own Corbel from start to finish. Sunday is a day-off  for students (and teacher!) to explore the beautiful surroundings of Seattle and the Puget Sound area including some of the local islands, Pike Place Market, or nearby Snoqualmie Falls.
Class size is limited to 3 students so register early! A course of study not to be missed by those interested in the field of architectural gilding for interiors!

Cancellation Policy: If student cancels class, a full credit, which does not expire and of same or equal value, will be provided for any available future class and any location. Full refund if instructor cancels class. Note: All efforts are made to accomodate make-up dates. Class Insurance through Eventbrite is a cost effective way that may help insure against the unexpected.
