This class is an introduction to gold tooling on leather, an age old practice with both traditional and modern applications in bookbinding. The sumptuous nature of these two materials is inherently alluring. This workshop is both a brief introduction to newcomers and an opportunity for further instruction for those already acquainted with tooling. Students will be provided with leather plaquettes and the gold to decorate them, and will create a foundation for further practice. No previous experience necessary.
