Byzantine Icon Painting Residential Retreat
Date / Time: Tuesday 10th April 2018
This five day workshop will be woven into the prayerful fabric of the Monastery’s daily offices. Participants will learn the traditional and ancient techniques of the Byzantine Masters, including ‘water gilding ‘, with 24 carat gold leaf over clay and how to make and use pigments made fresh each day in the studio from natural mineral colours and eggs. The aim of the workshop is to produce a small head and shoulders icon of Christ in the late Byzantine ‘Proplasmos ‘ style.
