GILDING BEE: A community gold leaf workshop with Laura Sue King
Laura Sue King—a painter and a printmaker—announced her gilding workshop in the following way:
“This is a chance to make everyday items into something exceptional with members of the community: a symbol of the importance of friendship and the significance of art, to put on the mantle piece. It could be a rock, pebble, small pot, or bottle.”
She brought people together by introducing them to the unique transformation process in which the power of gold meets the power of imagination.
