The ancient practice of making icons is rooted in an understanding of God as present in all things, and prayer as the act of attention and creation. Immerse yourself in this prayer-creative experience of God by actually creating an icon yourself. Over the course of six days, noted iconographer and teacher Susan Von Medicus will lead us through all the stages of writing a classical icon. The week will include ample time for learning technique and creating the icon as well as for experiencing God in the abundance of nature, of our common table, and our common prayer. This retreat is especially meant for newcomers to this practice. Not suitable for young children.
This retreat also requires an additional materials fee $160.00 (gessoed wood panel, 23K gold leaf, natural hair brushes, mineral pigments, egg tempera, study guides). A separate invoice for the materials fee will be charged after booking. Limited scholarships are available.
