(Malvern, PA) Historic Sugartown is excited to introduce new Gold
Tooling / Gilding workshops into our series of Book Bindery

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.
