Series of short workshops exploring Saint and their relationship with animals.

Series of workshops focusing on our relationship nature and more particularly with animals. You can book one workshop by choosing an option in a checkout. Let us know if you would like to book all of these.

We will be working with icons of saints that have a special relationship with animals. After this we will have one workshop where you will be invited to create an icon of an animal. You will be welcome to use one of Basia’s icons as a template or inspiration.

During this short workshop we will:

– reflect and talk about the wisdom of the saints and talk about their special relationship with animals

– use a process of writing an icon – image that will reflect this using imagery not words

– the purpose of these workshops is not necessarily to learn the technique and complete the image. It is to spend time in the process. We will of course do our best to finish our icons

 

All materials will be included: gesso panel, egg tempera mix, dry pigments and gilding materials.

 

1. Saint Seraphim and a Bear that was a theme of our recent retreat.

Tuesday – 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Wednesday – 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Thursday – 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

You will be able to choose to work with which ever is more important or more relevant to you. We know that Julian is not officially a Saint but still someone to relate to and learn from. You will be able to use either image and reflect on both of their lives as well. While Gertrude was not exactly close with cats and the reasons for her to be a patron of cats or not so obviously from her love of cats. We can take this story and create our own.

3. Last workshop of the series will be creating an image of which will be an icon of an Animal. Based on the image that Basia painted last year. You will be welcome to use these images as a template for your own work.

 

The image that we will use as an inspiration and reference was painted by Juliet Venter and you can find it here

Icon of a Bear

This workshop is shorter because it was painted much lighter in layers. We wont need as much time as with other icons. This will be a change for you to see how you can develop your own style and make your icons more personal.
