Workshop: Icon painting

Praying with brushes

This workshop has a practical and a theoretical part. We will look at the theology of icons and then experience practically what it feels like to pray with a brush in your hand. We will trace an icon from a template, and then paint it as a monochrome sketch with egg tempera paint.
This is not a workshop that teaches how to paint icons, that requires at least a week.
Instead, it is intended as a first taster to deepen the understanding and enjoyment of icons.

Workshop leader: Ruth Tuschling, parish vicar in Berlin, Anglican theologian and retreat facilitator
