Join us for this seasonally inspired workshop with Vanessa Lewis, also known as the Apothecary Artist. Vanessa will share her love and passion for the beautiful art of gold leaf. A time honoured tradition of applying fine layers of metal to paper, the gold brilliantly captures light and represents a joyful spirit found in the natural world. For beginners and advanced craftsperson’s alike, this workshop will introduce you to the technique and is guaranteed to inspire a whole new confidence and expression to your creativity. In this workshop Vanessa will supply you with 2 original artworks, a Christmas tree and a wreath and you'll learn to apply gold to these works. However, if you'd like to create your own artwork for gilding, Vanessa will cater for this too.

Vanessa will also create your very own unique gilded letter in advance for you to take home on the day.

Please note: due to COVID restrictions we have strictly limited places. We adhere to the latest NSW Gov guidelines on social distancing and hygiene at all times.
