Practice the art of embellishing with metal leaf as you create a set of two gorgeous heavy duty glass ornaments and wood gift tags.
You’ll add color to the clear glass and then learn the ins and outs of working with adhesive sizing and thin metallic sheets as you apply your choice of silver or gold leafing as a unique brushed accent. These handmade ornaments will be perfect for decking the halls or giving as gifts!
In class you'll also apply your new skills to embellish two wooden tags to put another glistening detail on your tree or to tie to a special wrapped gift.
Beyond the holidays you can apply this gilding technique to just about any surface to add a brilliant metallic accent.
All supplies and equipment will be provided.
Unless otherwise noted, workshops are for those 16 years of age or over.

Melinda Prynne is a lifelong creative with extensive practice in painting and creating with the, “I can probably make that!” mindset. She grew up in a small town in Texas where she used her creativity as an outlet to get her through childhood and high school. Afterwards she did some travelling abroad, eventually landing in Portland where everything fell into place. She decided it was time to embrace her creativity by opening up her Etsy store, The Arty Narwhal, and beginning to search for jobs that would embrace her creative side. With a background in teaching combined with her fervent crafting, Assembly is her perfect niche! When Melinda isn’t working on DIY projects and painting, you can find her tending to her plant babies, drinking her weight in tea, and on walks or cuddling her rescue dog, Milk, and her sweet British husband.
