Gilded letter, Dan Mooney Workshop 2015, by Harriet Davis

Dan is well known for his gold work and tooling of gold as well as his beautiful painting and calligraphy. If you want to see some of his work, visit his website:

Some of you will remember his TCG sponsored workshop here in 2015. After that weekend, I felt like I could actually work with real gold. Dan is an excellent teacher, he took us step by step through the process of gilding and painting, and we each completed a beautiful project. Of course, he has a different project in mind for this workshop!

Members may register now by sending a check for $150 to Luann Bacchi, 7105 Havenwood Drive, Raleigh, NC 27616. Registration will open to the public (for a higher fee) after September 22, 2019. We only have room for 18 participants, so secure your place! This picture is of the project I did in his 2015 workshop.
