Learn Gold Leafing with Shaanea Mendis D’Silva
Many works in the Geoffrey Bawa collection include Gold Leaf elements; it was a technique favoured by Donald Friend and subsequently used extensively by artists Laki Senanayake and Ismeth Raheem, among others.
Discover the textural possibilities, through experimentation of leafing surfaces, with artist Shaanea Mendis D’Silva. In this workshop, Shaanea will demonstrate the basic gold leafing process, and work side by side with workshop participants to apply gold leaf on an object of their choice.
