Atelier La Feuille d'Or

Jeanne JULIEN worked in different workshops in Paris and elsewhere in France to multiply her technical skills and perfect her know-how.

French gilder since 10 years, Jeanne JULIEN has been working for her own gilding workshop in Nantes since its launch in July 2013 : Atelier la Feuille d’Or.

The workshop’s skills are :

  • Water gilding (preceded by surface preparation and fine carving)
  • Oil gilding
