Workshop: Illumination Made Easy – with Toni Watts
November 13, 2021 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£30 – £35
Toni requires no introduction. She is a professional artist and illuminator; her illumination is to die for! She trained at The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, London. She uses techniques dating back to the medieval era. She was the Artist in Residence at Lincoln Cathedral from 2015 to 2016 and in that capacity produced more than forty gilded works.During this workshop you will learn how to add gold to a design using a variety of modern, readily-available sizes. We will look at the results which it is possible to achieve with burnishing, tooling, embossing and painting on gold leaf and compare those to the effects you can create by painting with shell gold. There will be the opportunity to create a small gilded design in the afternoon; there will be images to trace but creativity is welcomed!
