Sr Esther, a sister at Turvey Abbey is an experienced iconographer who leads a number of icon-centred workshops and retreats at Turvey every year. Some are focused on the actual techniques involved in creating icons, some are focused on engaging with icons and using them in prayer, and others combine the two approaches. There are offerings for people at all levels of experience, from those who are just developing an interest in icons to those who are already iconographers themselves. Please visit the Icon Events page on the Turvey Abbey webpage to learn more about the workshops and retreats being offered at Turvey.
Sr Esther has painted icons for churches in England and abroad as well as for individuals and would be happy to discuss your needs if you are thinking of commissioning an icon. Each commission is undertaken with patience and care; costs and other arrangements are decided on a case-by-case basis. Sr Esther is one of the founders of the British Association of Iconographers and is the Association President.
