Egg tempera/ Icon Painting Intensive Course

Monday 24 June - Friday 28 June
10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Early bird price till 2 month before the course.

This 5 day intensive workshop is designed for students of all abilities, no previous experience is required.

The aim of the course is to help you understand the tradition of icon painting through studying masterpieces, and through their inspiration to create your own icon.

Over 5 days of intensive work students will go through all stages of icon painting which will be a good introduction and experience for using egg tempera technique as well.

Stages of work include:

1. Sketching and designing. Students can use images of icons provided as an inspiration or just alter an original image slightly. Students are encouraged to be creative and listen to their instincts.

2. Transferring finished drawings onto a panel covered with layers of gesso. Panels are provided and ready for students to use as it takes at least 2 days to prepare them. (It is possible to have an additional tuition on making panels on a request).

3. Redrawing with paint. At this stage students will start learning how to make paints using egg yolk and dry pigments.

4. Once all surfaces are covered with enough layers of ground we can start building shapes using lights. In icon painting we don’t build shapes with shadows.

5. Gilding – for students who would like to try gilding. We would normally cover small surface using schlagmetal leafs which is not a real gold leaf. It is an excellent method for beginners as gold leaf is extremely thin and difficult to work with. We will use oil gilding.

6. Applying final lights and highlights. Finishing.

7. It is recommended to wait at least few weeks before varnishing finished icon painted in egg tempera. Students are welcome to arrange a time and date to come back and varnish their paintings.

You should be able to use a sewing machine confidently, have had practice making at least one or two craft projects, and have an awareness of basic seams and hems. If you do not, then I recommend you take one of my Beginners classes first.

What will I learn? I’ll coach you in the following:

>How to choose an appropriate pattern for your level of ability,
>Taking measurements, cutting and fitting the pattern, understanding pattern markings and instructions
>Altering the pattern for a perfect fit

Gentle yoga class

Wednesday 26 June
10:00 am - 11:30 am

The class is suitable for anyone with minor injuries or health conditions (or anyone else) who needs to work a bit slower.
In Iyengar yoga we use equipment – chairs, bolsters, blocks, belts, bolsters, blankets etc. to make asanas more accessible to those with physical limitations. Poses can be adapted to suit individual requirements. This class begins with gentle preparatory poses, moves on to simple asanas to stretch and align the body and ends with a few relaxing poses – longer holds in supported poses.

Who is this aimed at?
Quilters, Would-be textile artists, dressmakers or crafters looking for something a bit different!

This workshop aims to teach you the basic techniques of free-motion embroidery:

setting up the machine for free-motion embroidery
guiding the needle to draw with thread
how to obtain a variety of patterns and texture effects
