Nadege- This will be an introductory class, we will be working with composite gold leaf. I have been gold leafing professional for 2 years and doing it for my art work for 6 years. I have done many interesting jobs and may be able to show you some tips or unorthodox ways to work with gold leaf. I would hate to bore you or waste your time but would love to have your input in the class. Please feel free to email me with any other thanks.

I am planing to come and I will pay cash at the class
Sara, how long have you been doing gold leaf and will you be going beyond
beginning introduction because I have already been doing work for a couple
of years on a limited scale but am looking to take my technical expertise
up a few notches. Thanks for any info and response.

RSVP please!
