Icon support groups

These pages about past courses are included for general information only. Please use the contact information for current details of courses and workshops.

In addition to the icon painting workshops held at Turvey Abbey, there are a number of icon support groups that are held on a number of Mondays throughout the year.

These icon support groups are led by Sr. Esther. They provide an opportunity for anyone who is interested to come along and paint an icon of their choice, to learn from one another and have the added joy of undertaking this in a supportive group setting.

There is no need to book although it would be helpful, if you are new to iconography to contact Sr. Esther using the following e-mail link: icons@turveyabbey.org.uk

The icon support groups aim to start at around 9.45am on a Monday.   All are welcome to join the Abbey community for Midday Prayer and Vespers. The service of Vespers is held in the chapel at 5.45pm and is a nice conclusion for the day for those who can manage to stay.

Please bring a packed lunch  – tea and coffee are provided.  There is a small voluntary charge to cover overheads.
