Please join us for an educational 1/2-day workshop on the centuries old practice of woodgraining and gilding.  Led by industry experts and master craftsmen, John Canning and David Riccio, they will present best practices and techniques on the application of both architectural finishes.  This interactive workshop will include hands-on demonstrations and an opportunity for participants to test their skills at gilding and learn how to apply traditional metallic leaf.

We are pleased to announce that the workshop is being hosted by North Bennett Street School (NBSS).  Located in the North End neighborhood of Boston, the North Bennet Street School's mission is to train students for careers in traditional trades that use hand skills in concert with evolving technology, to preserve and advance craft traditions, and to promote greater appreciation of craftsmanship.  The NBSS students and faculty will be joining us in this workshop.
