Princeton – The Princeton Arts Society will hold a workshop on the versatile art of gold/metal leaf Sunday, March 29, from 1:30-4:30 p.m., in the PAS room on the first floor of the Princeton Center Building, 18 Boylston Ave. The easy to learn method is a great addition to an amazing array of art forms: paintings, ceramic pieces, walls, mirrors, plaster pieces, furniture and carvings, book covers, paper, greeting cards, costumes, wearable accessories, home accessories, gift items, vessels for flower arranging, and even cakes and cookies.
Painters, sculptors, ceramicists, decorators, woodworkers, writers, poets, calligraphers, crafters, bakers, DIY picture framers, etc. are all welcome. No previous experience is required. Two wooden Easter eggs forms will be provided to gild, along with the tools and materials to learn the process. Participants will make a finished piece by the end of the workshop. Experiment with bronze, copper, silver, and gold leaf and see a very wide variety of inspired projects.
Light refreshments will be provided. The class is limited to 25 adults, and cost is $15 for PAS members and $20 for non-members.
