One of Saint Guy’s best known attributes was his pilgrim’s hat. According to legend, Guy spent seven years on a pilgrimage in Rome and the Holy Land before returning to die in Anderlecht. The collegiate church’s treasury contains a silver hat dating from the early 19th century and intended to cover the statue of the saint, which was used as a model to create an exact replica using a 3D printer. By decorating Saint Guy’s hat, participants will learn how to recognise the different ancient techniques of polychromy (paint and gilding) that are taught to future restorers. Their creations will then be exhibited in the church. This workshop is led by Sandy Van Wissen (a teacher of polychromy and a restorer specialising in the conservation of polychrome statues).
