Join us on for a hands-on crafting and cocktail class lead by Gold Leaf Artist, Kelly Aiken and Cocktailery Instructor, Ashleigh

About this experience

If you didn’t already know, we love gold and we love gold leaf even better. Kelly Aiken, is the artist who brought the beautiful wall murals at The Cocktailery to life using her gold leafing and artistic perspective.  

In this 2 hr class, Kelly will teach you the gold leafing technique and lead you through making 4 abstract coasters using gold leaf and acrylic paint which you will then set with resin.  These coasters will make a thoughtful gift to give for the holiday or use them to decorate your bar cart or dinner table.

In between instruction learn to make two  cocktails with Cocktailery Class Instructor, Ashleigh, that will be perfect to serve this season.

  • All class sizes are kept between 8-12 people total. Due to the nature of our classes and limited class size, they are non-refundable, except in the case of a cancellation by The Cocktailery.
