Led by professional iconographer and Director of the Bethlehem Icon School, Ian Knowles, this rewarding workshop will introduce you to the ancient medium of egg tempera. Learn this fascinating technique through step-by-step demonstrations and create your own simple icon. Fee includes a traditionally prepared gesso board. Suitable for beginners.

All basic materials provided for this class (heavier weight papers available at cost price). Please bring an apron or wear clothes suitable for an art studio. We recommend bringing your own pointed round sable watercolour brushes if you have them. As wet media will be used, you may wish to bring a plastic bag or portfolio for taking wet work home.
