‘Learn the Ancient Art of Gilding’ with Siobhan Newton of Miles-Moore Ceramics
Gilding is the ancient art of coating objects with multiple layers of metal leaf. This masterclass gives the opportunity to gain unique insight into these skills and techniques, and return home with a beautiful shiny artwork you have created. No previous experience needed.
Siobhan Miles-Moore is one half of award winning Miles-Moore Ceramics where she uses gilding in her every day practice creating ceramic sculptures. You may have seen her, and her fellow artist Jessica Elleray on Countryfile with the 17 tonne gilded Heartstone in the copper mines valley, Coniston.
