New Gold Tooling Workshops in Historic Sugartown’s Bindery

Gold Tooling / Gilding Workshop

Wednesday, February 7th

9AM – 12PM

Historic Sugartown is excited to introduce new Gold Tooling / Gilding workshops into our series of Book Bindery workshops. Based on positive feedback in previous workshops, Colonial Williamsburg-trained instructor, Ramon Townsend of, has developed this new class to allow participants to focus on the specialized technique of gold tooling. Using gold leaf, gold foil and Historic Sugartown’s collection of bookbinding finishing tools, participants will learn traditional methods of designing and decorating leather in gold, the same way fine books were gold-tooled hundreds of years ago.


Workshop Admission: $60/Person, all supplies included. Ages 14 & Up. (Ages 14 – 17 must be accompanied by an adult). Pre-registration is required. Space is limited to 6 participants.
