Gilding Workshop

Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery 10:00 am - 2:00 pm Course

We’re celebrating the discovery of the Shropshire Sun pendant with a series of workshops focusing on all things golden. Come and try your hand at the art of gilding.
This ancient craft has existed for 4000 years, and has remained largely unchanged for many of those. Learn about the materials and techniques behind the gold leaf with Anthea Renshaw, Gilder, Restorer & Decorative Artist. Anthea will talk about the different processes of gilding, the variety of gold and metal leaf, and the importance of gilding conservation in the museum. You will have a go too, and go home with your own Verre Églomisé, gilded glass artwork.
