2014 November Meeting

all that glitters

The November meeting will be held on November 8th at

 St. Francis Xavier.

Meeting time is 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

November is upon us and Christmas not far behind.  So to get you in the creative spirit we have planned a glittering program with an emphasis on gilding.

 Lisette Copping and Mary Dawes will discuss and demonstrate techniques used for Medieval illuminations concentrating on the various glues used for gilding illuminated manuscripts.

After Lisette and Mary have shared their expertise, we will have a hands on project using Instacoll and Patent Gold Leaf.  Also bring your favorite gold media, such as gold inks, paints, gouache and pens, so that we can compare them with the real thing.

Please note the change of venue for November’s meeting.  

We will meet at St. Francis Xavier’s parish office building.
