This fascinating two-day workshop is designed for those interested in learning how to paint a religious icon (like those in Greek or Russian churches). If you are interested in having a go at using egg tempera or want to paint in an ecologically sensitive way then this two-day workshop, spread over two Saturdays, is for you. Under guidance from a professional iconographer you will be taken through the process of 'writing' a sacred icon of the Face of Jesus, and by the end you should have a completed icon to take home with you. No previous experience necessary, just a willingness to try a very different technique and 'have a go'. Prepared gesso board provided.
