An iconography workshop, presented by St. Michael’s Orthodox Cathedral and the Greater Sitka Arts is being offered to the public in Sitka for the very first time. Instructor, Charles Rohrbacher, a highly respected Alaskan iconographer with 3 decades of icon “writing” experience, will guide and support participants through the general technical sequence, layer upon layer. Tools and materials are based on egg tempera, powdered minerals, and gold leafing applied to gesso board.
