Icon Painting Workshop

From 27th November 2017 to 1st December 2017

Experienced iconographer Peter Murphy will lead workshop members through a simple to follow step-by-step process with careful instructions and demonstrations. This five day workshop will give participants the opportunity to paint a Christmas themed Byzantine Icon of either the Archangel Gabriel or the Virgin Mary. Past workshop attendees have used these icons either as a unique gift for someone special or had them photographed and made into their personal Christmas card. Each workshop member will receive all of the materials required to complete a painted and gilded icon in the Byzantine style. This includes a hand made Serbian lime wood, gessoed icon panel, gold leaf and genuine medieval pigments.
