The 2017 SOG Conference is on! Dates will be between June 4 and June 10 in Arlington, Texas. The exact dates are still to be determined but this should be enough to allow us to make plans.
The Conference will be held at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), and will be sponsored by their Art & Art History Dept. We will publish the exact dates as soon as the Board announces them. Classes and lectures are being lined up now. Members Dan and Linda Dipert are hosting the conference and doing much of the groundwork. It should be a good one.

Make sure you are signed up for our mailing list (on the right) to get all the conference updates.

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.
