Unfortunately I do not speak English. Therefore, you will need an interpreter. The cost of the interpreter in Moscow about $ 10-15 per hour. If you choose to use its services, I'll help find it. Based on this, it seems to me if you want to take a master class in Moscow, it is better to visit a small group of colleagues with the same interests, so it will be cheaper and more interesting to discuss what they see.
For those who do not speak in Russian, I can offer three options for master classes.
1) Individual workshop. In addition to you and those who you gonna call will be just me and a translator.
2) Master class with their compatriots. Will a translator at all, will be cheaper than individually. But you must be willing to gather a group of people who speak your language.
3) Master class with the Russian-speaking group. Workshops take place in Moscow on a regular basis, usually every Sunday. However, as mentioned above, you'll need a translator.
Would you like to see us in your country with master classes? Excellent! We also want this for two reasons - we love to travel and love to interact with people who share our passion - gilding and iconography.
We are always open to suggestions from all over the world. I would like to see a proposal in the first place from the icon-painting workshops, to hold several master classes in your country on the basis of this school. All of these proposals we will consider individually. Write to us on email email@example.com or Facebook .
The cost of the master class does not include the cost of the board 10x13 cm (600 rubles - about $ 10) and gold leaf Raritet. You can bring and use your own. However, to gilding via bolus needs good poliment with the correct application to the board (not strictly acrylic!).
I will bring all the other materials - agate polishers own production, curly punches and other tools bolus charbonnel Lefranc, a highly adhesive, sanding sponge Microfine and other materials. All of these materials can also be purchased locally.
