Courses in icon carving are open to 10 students at each site. This ancient art is taught through both practical work and theory. From the earliest sarcophagi to lavish ivory miniatures to the austere Russian low reliefs, icon carving has been a vibrant part of the Orthodox Tradition.

Students will have the opportunity to carve either in either wood or stone.  Those wishing to carve in wood are expected to have a basic understanding of woodworking as the course will focus on carving rather than technical aspects like laminating panels or  sharpening tools.  Although tools will be available, students should bring whatever gouges they have, ideally 1 straight gouge, 1 scoop gouge and 1 “V” gouge.  For those wishing to carve stone, tools will be made available.  Each student is expected to leave with at least one finished icon by the end of the class.​  ​​
