Image 1 – Being delighted with our previous work there, we were favoured with additional architectural goldleaf gilding work at St Patrick’s.
This time the project involved the gilding of decorative wooden fretwork panels that are positioned behind the altar.
These were originally plain wood but the addition of the goldleaf creatively enhance the panels, making a spectacular focal point of the altar.
We are happy to be involved with the most intricate of goldleaf gilding projects.
