This online workshop will introduce participants to a contemporary approach to the traditional technique of gilding (the process of applying metal leaf to a surface). Students will learn the process of preparing different material surfaces so that metal leaf can be applied and incorporated into visual compositions, through workshop exercises and experimentation. *Students will be a provided a list of materials that they will need to purchase prior to the class.* Kala will be using Zoom, an online video conferencing service to bring participants our interactive creative lessons. Kala will follow recommended security measures, and set virtual classroom expectations so we can maintain a safe and fun learning experience for all participants online.
