Welcome to the Society of Gilders Official Website

The Society of Gilders is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the practice and preservation of the art of using gold and metal leaf. Our members use gilding in all its applications, including architecture, fine art, framing, signage, illumination and more.  The organization is a valuable resource for technical help for gilders, restorers, conservators, craftsmen, and all those interested in the gilding arts. Our classes and conferences bring gilders together from around the globe to learn, discuss and share. Our community projects give back to the community while fostering gilding skills.
