Free Demonstration at OSA!

St. John by Lorraine Bushek 

First Thursday Dec. 1

Writing Icons in egg tempera and gold leaf

Demo Begins @ 7pm at OSA Upstairs Studio

Writing Icons in egg tempera and gold leaf

OSA members Kris Kuester and Lorraine Bushek will talk about the their experience of "writing" an icon in the Byzantine tradition.  Both took an intensive week long session on Writing Icons at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. They will talk about the egg tempera and gold leaf process.  Also will demonstrate how egg tempera is made.

They will do this from scratch using imported pigments.  Lorraine will demonstrate how to lay down gold leaf.... however, she admits she is not an expert!  Several icons will be on display; and hopefully others who took the course at Trinity will be present., Kris Kuester on Facebook
