Salt Lake City, Feb. 9– Craft Lake City and West Elm announce the March Gold Leafing Workshop with Lisa Lewis of Light & Ink. The workshop will be held on Thursday, March 2, at West Elm City Creek from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Craft Lake City DIY Festival alum Lisa Lewis of Light & Ink imbues her talent and beautiful approach into her designs. Lewis began creating stump prints after a beloved tree was cut down at her home, inking the stump and printing it to preserve its age and memory. Lewis then started selling her nature-inspired designs as Light & Ink to offer beautiful wood, paper, and glass products that are simple and imaginative.
“Teaching these workshops through Craft Lake City is a blast!” says Lewis “They are always organized, helpful and cheerful. I’ve taught four workshops over the years, and each time, I walk away thinking I’d love to do that again.”
Participants at this workshop will learn the basics of gold leafing and gold leaf a wooden air plant holder to take home.
There is a $30 material fee. Pre-registration is required here. Visit craftlakecity.com/workshops or the Facebook page for more information. The Stockist is located at 875 E 900 S, Salt Lake City, Utah.
