14th-16th August and 21-23rd August, 9.45-4.30
Icon Painting Course
Sister Esther is running an Icon Painting course at All Saints Church on August 14th - 16th and 21st-23rd, 9.45-4.30 with a break for Eucharist (for those who so wish) and lunch. This is one course split into two parts.
Icon painting is an ancient and sacred art which is gaining in popularity in the West and has seen a great revival both in East and West since mid-last century. Because Christ has permeated matter we use natural material (as far as possible) with pure powder pigment which we mix with egg yolk and water mix and paint onto a specially prepared gesso board. Using this technique, the icon does not fade over the centuries (as with other artificial paints) but hardens and increases the intensity of colour.
It is a help if you are able to donate £69.70 to cover the costs of brushes and boards which need to be ordered within the next few weeks. If this is not affordable please do not worry.
There is no need to be able to draw or even paint!
The course is for beginners and any who have some experience too.
Please let Cindy Woods know if you are interested (cindywoods@btinternet or phone 01234 88849) and leave a message.
