21-25 August 2017
with Romanian Iconographer, Tatiana Nichita
Romanian Iconographer Tatiana Nichita makes a return visit to Cumbrae following a highly successful workshop week in 2016. She will guide participants through the process of selecting and creating a genuine icon using gessoed board, gold leaf and egg tempura paints. No previous experience in iconography is needed. Participants in 2016 found this a deeply moving experience and each left with a stunning work of art.
Tatiana Nichita is an icon painter from Romania. She studied restoration and icon-painting at the Faculty of Theology in Bucharest, where she lives. She has had exhibitions of her work in Romania as well as in England; a number of her icons can be seen in churches throughout England. Some samples of her icons are here http://tatiananichita.blogspot.ro
