Icon painting retreat: Monday 29 May to Friday 2 June. This workshop is open to beginners as well as to those with some experience, who wish to paint an icon as an expression of personal prayer. During this week we will explore the spirituality and symbolism contained within icons. The retreat will be led by Maureen Rimmer, who has many years experience of icon painting in egg-tempera. She has completed commissions to write icons for churches in the north east of England.
