The main focus of this workshop is on helping you to find your own personal style. To help you develop creative practice and find the confidence that you need to make creativity a part of your daily life.

It is an ongoing Class but students are guided individually through the process of creating an Icon.

Not recommended for complete beginners but if you have some experience drawing or painting but not Icon painting please contact me and we can discuss if it will be suitable for you.

 

You will be guided through all the stages of creating an Icon. You will be supported in conveying your own ideas and a personal style.

 

Peaceful music played in between feedback will help you come to a quiet and meditative place.

 

You will deepen your understanding and practice of the principles of the egg tempera technique which include:

  • The composition used in icon painting
  • Icon styles including Byzantine and Russian
  • Preparation of egg yolk binding medium
  • Making your own paints from dry pigments
  • Working with thin layers
  • Egg tempera brushwork
  • Dry brushwork

MATERIALS

You will need some materials to get started.

First Class

Pencil, thin paper, and a copy of an image that you want to paint.

Next Classes

Let us know if you already have materials or need any assistance with deciding which materials. There are many options and it’s not necessary to buy too many to be able to start painting.

    Thursday morning Icon Classes have kept my soul stable and steady over lockdown since mid-2020, being the shining and inspirational centre of my week. Basia’s style of teaching is very supportive, giving room for individual inspiration to flourish. If we need advice, she is full of helpful techniques to create the effect we envision, while offering us methods for improvement when we inevitably make mistakes. The joy of icon making is that we learn from such mistakes and that they are recoverable, because we working in egg tempera, which is very forgiving. The companionship of my fellow and sister icon makers has also been wonderful: we each have different visions and approaches, but each person’s icon gives us windows into the art of icons.

    When I discovered Basia was providing online courses, I decided to enrol to see if I could develop my iconography skills. She is so patient and knowledgable that one soon feels confident in ones ability to embark on egg tempera painting. Her teaching is grounded in history, theology and technique and this opens the whole dimension of iconography. There are no ‘ mistakes’ in ones attempts, just learning experiences and developments. She is very patient and has a good sense of humour. I would highly recommend her as a tutor and encourage others to enrol on her courses.
