“Gold, that most precious of metals!”
Have you ever seen an old leatherbound or cloth book decorated with gold? If you enjoy reading books, love the look of gold, and enjoy the feel of leather then this is the workshop for you. Using gold leaf, gold foil and Historic Sugartown’s collection of bookbinding finishing tools you will learn traditional methods of designing and decorating leather in gold, the same way fine books were gold-tooled hundreds of years ago.
All materials are included, and tools will be provided.
Cost per Person*: $60/Adult
Class size is limited to 4 people until further notice. Participants must be over the age of 18.
Length of Class: Typical class lasts about 4 hrs
