Icon Workshops and Retreats
We offer a series of six-day
workshops, offering an opportunity
to learn and practice the art of painting or writing icons in the
contemplative calm of a Benedictine monastery.
The tutor is
Dom Alex Echeandía Loro, a Peruvian monk and iconographer, who is
currently working on a series of Icons for the Monastery of the
Incarnation in Pachacamac.
Each day will begin with a demonstration of the
techniques to be used and the rest of the day is spent painting, with support
and accompaniment from Dom Alex. The designs will be applied to the board, and
the colour layers built up to complete the icon.
