Iconography Course Details


9 Week Iconography Course


Dates: TBA


Beginners through to experienced icon painters are welcome to start their learning journey or consolidate their techniques in this nine-week course. Students will learn the contemplative practise of icon writing using the ancient art of egg tempera pigment painting in the Prosopon Iconography style. The practice of crafting an icon will be enhanced by the study of the theological world view from which the practice emerged. The symbolic meaning of the iconic forms, as well as the materials and the processes involved, will therefore all play a part in the practice.

Materials Provided:

  • Pigment colours to share

  • Tracing and scratching tools to share

  • Icon image reference (if required)

  • Icon board with traditional gesso
