Icon Heritage


St. Seraphim’s Trust wishes to build on the long tradition of traditional Orthodox Icon painting carried out by Leon Liddament (below) and Father David over 40 years. Their commitment to painting Icons of local and British Saints is of particular importance, and their Icons can be found all over the world as well as the British Isles. The Trust aims to provide information about the role of icons in Orthodox worship and the home, and the traditional methods for their creation. We plan on converting the space around the chapel into a display area with space for workshops in the various aspects of icon-painting method, such as gessoing and painting with egg tempera. We also plan on having a program of talks and events complementing these activities.
