October 2017 Glass Gilding Workshop with Noel B. Weber

(Updated August 2017) Noel has one remaining workshop planned for 2017. The class lasts three days and is priced at $985 USD. This is a significantly lower price than Noel’s typical workshops and another great reason to take advantage of this class. A small group setting offers close interaction and helpful conversation. Students will learn:

● Translating a pencil sketch to a finished glass panel
● Basic to advanced gold leaf on glass techniques
● Reverse glass painting
● Mother of pearl application
● Screen printing on glass
● Traditional and contemporary materials for glass gilding
● How to price a project
● Basic tips for on site gold leaf on glass production

A $300 deposit is required by August 25, 2017. The deposit can be sent via PayPal to noel@classicdesignstudios.com or alternatively with a check by mail, contact Noel for the mailing address

October 5th-7th in Astoria, Oregon

Join Noel this October in Astoria, a small town with a rich history. Astoria is located two hours west of Portland at the mouth of the Columbia River, nearby to ocean beaches. The workshop takes place in the gymnasium of a former YMCA building, with good natural light and close proximity to hotels, restaurants and breweries. Workshop runs from October 5th – 7th, and most likely will extend into the 8th as we wrap up the class and package your art for transportation. We will be providing lunch on the 5th and 6th. Spots still available.
