Gilding with Philip Hodge


5-day duration


This is an intensive but relaxing 5 day course suitable for beginners or those wanting to hone their skills. All courses will be taught personally by Philip Hodge and comprehensive notes will be given to each student.

Gilding has a long and rich history and we will be spending a little time looking at the background to gilding. However we will be concentrating largely on the practical application of different gilding theories and methods , including; traditional oil gilding, traditional water gilding, modern materials and techniques, and gilding on glass. The biggest part of the course is "hands on", with students working on gilding projects.

Gilding Course - Materials

All materials will be provided as part of the course fee. This includes a personal gilding kit for you to use on the course and then take home to use afterwards. The personal gilding kit includes 3 different brushes, a gilders cushion, gilders knife, gilders tip, squirrel mop and a book of gold leaf. Comprehensive course notes will be supplied
