WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION | The purpose of this basic four hour Zoom leafing workshop is to acquaint students with the fundamentals of leafing an image printed on Kozo paper, adhering the leafed image to a board and the application of cold wax.  Kozo is a Japanese paper made from the inner bark of the mulberry tree.  Amanda has chosen Kozo for presentation of her personal work because of its relative transparency, allowing the luster of the leaf to show through.  The cold wax is applied after the leafing process, which further enhances the translucency of the paper.

The workshop will cover:

  • Applying gold and silver leaf to Kozo paper
  • Applying the leafed image to substrate (optional)
  • Applying cold wax over the image

The gallery will ship all the boards, prints, art supplies and equipment necessary to complete four images during the workshop.  The supply fee includes one booklet of white gold leaf (25 sheets), one booklet of silver leaf (25 sheets), hardboard cut to size for four images, four Kozo prints of student images, cold wax, chip brush, rags and face mask. Due to shipping issues, student will need to purchase sizing and varnish. The student will ship back the equipment after the follow up session.  Participants are responsible for reimbursing the gallery for the shipping costs to and from their home/studio.  Shipping labels will be provided by the gallery.
