The Society of Gilders is a non-profit educational organization devoted to the art and craft of gilding. Our mission is to preserve traditional gilding skills and techniques and promote the highest standards in gilding.
Our members use gilding in all its applications, including architecture, fine art, framing, signage, and manuscript illumination. The organization is a valuable resource for gilders, restorers, conservators, craftsmen, and all those interested in the gilding arts. Our classes and conferences bring gilders from around the globe to learn, discuss and share. Our community projects give back to the community while fostering gilding skills.
