This workshop is all about quietness and stillness. And a beautiful art of icon painting.

I'm offering something a bit different this time. We will focus on the meditative aspect of icon painting.

Each session will start with short guided meditation. This will help us to "come home to our bodies".

After the meditation we will share what images we brought to explore and our motivation behind it.

We will still go through all stages of the process. Using the traditional technique of egg tempera and gold gilding. This will include making our own paints from egg yolk medium and dry pigments.

We will be reminded that it's not about completing the piece. It's about being present in every brush stroke. Enjoying every line that we make.

At the end we will share our experiences from the process. 

You will be asked to bring an image/images that will be your reference for the workshop. To spend some time with them as a way of preparing for the workshop.

No experience required. Beginners welcome.

Times:
Saturday and Sunday 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
1 hour lunch break.
