Description

A 3 day Icon Painting Retreat with residential options.

An icon is a devotional painting of a sacred figure such as Christ, a saint, or other spiritual beings. In the context of this retreat, it could also be a tree, plant, or other natural symbols that speak to you. The combination of contemplation, intention, and painting with authentic materials will be a soothing and nourishing experience. The aim is to relax and inspire body and soul.

Please bring a rough sketch of what you want to paint, bearing in mind the size of the board is 5" x 7" or 13cms x 18cms. Choose a single figure with uncomplicated background: this will take all your time to paint since icons are made up of many layers.

Please bring a technical pencil, a rubber, an apron to cover your clothing, and a clean tea cloth to protect your icon on the journey home. All other materials are provided, including gesso-board, pigments, and brushes.

Residential options are fully inclusive with all meals provided. If you would like to share a room with someone you live with, please call 01453 759 034. Non-residential includes suppers, lunches, and all refreshments.

Registration is on Friday 27th August at 16:00. The course starts with supper at 18:30 and ends after lunch at 14:00 on Sunday 30th August.

Please get in touch for any further questions.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
