Enjoy learning the skills of applying gold leaf with exquisite effect and painting with gouache using a fine brush to create your own illuminated initial.
We will be working on initials created by Owen Jones, an influential Victorian designer who created a magnificently embellished alphabet with numerous foliated and filigreed variations for each letter.
You'll be carefully guided through the process of tracing down, gilding, decorating and detailing to produce a beautifully finished handmade letter.
Suitable for all levels of ability.
All materials are included in the price.
Fees are non-refundable except in the event of cancellation by the tutor.
