These lessons will include decorative painting and “The Grammar of Ornament,” traditional Italian lime plastering, gold and silver leaf gilding—including traditional sign painting—and the basics of wallpaper hanging. You will begin with hands-on painting and plastering, stories, science, history, and the use of fine Italian plastering tools. After a lunch break, you’ll practice gilding and traditional sign painting. The grand finale will be wallpaper hanging using exciting samples from around the world.
