Learn to write icons from professional icon writer Melissa Moss. This retreat is intended for those new to icon writing.
The retreat will be held in as close to a scriptorium atmosphere as possible. We will start with prayer, have prayer at noon-day, and end the workday with prayer. We pray especially that the Holy Spirit will work through our hands to help us depict the holy images. Technique and icon lore will be covered, and questions welcomed from the participants, but otherwise, we will work in silence.
All materials are provided.
We will be working with the icon of Christ Pantocrator from St. Catherine’s monastery in the Sinai. You will leave the 5-day retreat with your own icon.
On Tuesday evening the group will travel to Grace Church in the Mountains, Episcopal in Waynesville for a lecture and visit to the stunning traveling exhibition that presents the mystery and spiritual power of icons through the work of artist Ludmila Pawlowska’s exhibit Icons in Transformation. Overnight participants will purchase dinner in Waynesville on Tuesday.
Commuter and overnight options are available. Registration fees and other information are available on the Lake Logan website.
