Decorative Gilding Workshop

On December 7, 2018, SAIC’s Historic Preservation Department hosted a hands-on workshop on decorative gilding. The session, which took place in SAIC’s 15th floor lab classroom at 116 South Michigan Avenue, was sponsored by the Association for Preservation Technology - Western Great Lakes Chapter.  

Approximately 25 participants traveled to the Auditorium Theater to see gilding in situ, which was followed by a hands-on session led by artisans from EverGreene Architectural Arts. Attendees included current SAIC students, faculty, alumni, and practicing preservation professionals.
