If you or someone you know has shown interest in the Gilding Arts and would like to learn about water gilding and related  decorative art techniques, please contact me at the studio. Phone: 540-955-3939 or email: phmillerstudio@gmail.com. My studio classes are geared toward gilders with experience as well as those interested in starting fresh. The classes are purposely small so that each student can get the most of the class. My gilding experience is based on 35 years as a professional gilder and frame maker.

Class offerings include Water Gilding, Carving Ornaments on frames, Sgraffito, Pastiglia, Glass Gilding.
