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 iterations, 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.

Active members of the Society of Gilders are invited to submit gilded works for an exhibition celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Monmouth (NJ) Museum. The juried exhibit, mid-September through mid-November, will primarily feature works to be hung. There are limited options for three dimensional works. The Society plans to hold classes, primarily basic gilding, at a nearby location, one weekend in the fall.
