Two five-day icon workshops are now offered for 2021, in May 10-14 and September 13-17. These will be held as usual at beautiful Walcot Hall, Lydbury North, Shropshire. Click the links below for information about them and for the registration forms. In May we shall be painting a bust (waist up) and in September a full figure. Places book up quickly, so please email me as soon as possible with your completed registration form if you would like to book a place and I will send a proforma invoice for the deposit. Although deposits are not usually refundable if you cancel, in this case it will be refunded if you have to withdraw due to Covid or the course itself is cancelled due to Covid.
I have almost finished the text for a new book on the history and meaning of the fourteen Great Festal icons. This promises to be the most comprehensive book on the subject yet published in English, with at least thirty pages dedicated to each feast and amply illustrated. Please drop me an email if you wish to be notified when it is published at firstname.lastname@example.org.
