Water Gilding Workshop
June 8-9, 2018                    
Los Angeles

Joy of All Who Sorrow Orthodox Church

 

This is a two-day gilding workshop. Students are taught the technique of water gilding. Water gilding is a traditional and highly skilled technique used for the gilding of icons. During this workshop we learn all the stages of water gilding using 22 carat gold leaf. Beginning with the preparation of the board which is done by applying linen then covering with many layers of gesso. The last stage of the process is applying the clay bole and finally burnishing the gold with an agate stone which results in gold that is smooth and shines like a mirror, obtaining a brilliant and very impressive effect.
Those students who participate in both the water gilding and icon painting workshops will practice the water gilding on the halo of the Christ Pantocrator icon, which is the icon that will be completed in the icon painting workshop immediately following the water gilding workshop.
Students participating in the water gilding workshop only will practice the water gilding on a small gessoed board of the icon of the Mother of God.
Each student will practice the water gilding with any needed assistance given by the instructor, Theodoros Papadopoulos.
Course space for the water gilding workshop is limited. Please register early to guarantee your spot.
