Come and learn Gold Leafing in the beautiful grounds of the Bradgate Park estate. We’re in the Visitor Centre, located at the centre of the Park at the Deer Barn. The Visitor Centre can can be found by following the carriageway through the Park from either the Newtown Linford (1 mile) or the Cropston car parks (3/4 mile).
A day to learn the art of illumination using gilding techniques and real gold leaf. Enhance two initial letters with gold leaf and vibrant colours.
Gold leaf, glue, brushes and paper are all provided. There will be lots of extras available to buy on the day.
Light refreshments are included, but don’t forget to bring your own lunch as we will be having a 1/2 hour break to relax a little.
Everything is provided for the class including gold leaf initial letters and card (all yours to keep) along with Jane’s years of knowledge and information on this historic skill. Many other products for excelling at this art will be available to buy on the day
