ICON WRITING COURSE
Dates have now been confirmed.
8th—13th June, 2015
The word “icon” is a Greek word meaning image. It is the same word used in the Bible in Genesis 1:27: ‘God created man in His image’. The icon is an integral part of the liturgy of the Orthodox churches. Its beauty is much more than what we see. It is the visual Word of God, and, like a sacrament, invites us to open ourselves to an experience beyond words, which touches the innermost depths of our being. It awakens in us a sense of inner world which is permeated by a divine light. Icon writing is a skill that has been handed down since the earliest Christian times. Each Icon tells a story which is why it is called writing and not painting.
