  • You  will  have  the  choice  to  paint  Santiago  the  pilgrim (with  scallop  shell  and  staff)  or  the  black  Madonna   of  Czestochowa  using  the  1,500  year  old  icon  painting  technique.
  • You  will  learn  how  to  collect, prepare and paint  with  natural  pigment,  egg  tempera  (egg  yolk  mixed  with  wine )  and use real  gold. 
  • This  will  also  be  your  opportunity  to  engage  in  a  meditative  process in  a  beautiful  and  nourishing  environment  and  spend  some  quiet  time  in  nature,  go  for  walks  on  the  beautiful  camino  de  Santiago.  Through  out  the  week  we  will  also  be receiving  pilgrims  for  the  evening  meals  and  sharing  by  the  fire   under  the  quiet  star - filled  Camino night sky.

    I am unable to get into PayPal.
    I will ask my brother in law to help me on Thursday. Otherwise I will ring and pay over the phone.
    Looking forward to seeing you.
