This workshop will introduce students to a contemporary gilding technique (the process of applying metal leaf to a surface). Participants will learn the process of preparing different material surfaces so that metal leaf can be applied and incorporated in visual compositions, as a jumping-off point for future explorations in their own artistic practices.

Session 1: Gilding Demonstration: Surface Preparation, Sizing and Metal Leaf Application

Session 2: In-Class Student Application of Technique


A Northern California native, SOLANGE ROBERDEAU, graduated with a BFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2005 and received her MFA in Studio Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2012. Her work relates directly to the environments around her. Using the shapes from objects and landscape, she creates drawings that explore the fluid nature of perception and speak to the creative potential in the nuances of the spaces we inhabit.
