- 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.
- Would you like to extend your retreat? Stone carving takes place just before this retreat. See here
