From the Principal
I am due to leave the Icon Centre in an hour or so, loaded with all the drawings and plans for the Lichfield Project. Nicola, Sr Esther and Dima will be joining me on Tuesday afternoon in Lichfield.
The Cross has already been safely constructed, gessoed and sanded and delivered by Dylan Hartley and his team! It is now in situ in the south transept of Lichfield Cathedral in what will be our studio for the coming couple of months.
Come and visit us: If you would like to come and visit the studio then please be in touch to arrange a suitable time. Basically we are not freely available until early August as the initial period demands a lot of intensive work such as gilding so if possible please delay your visit until then. It will also be more helpful to welcome people in the afternoons, though please be aware of service times when obviously we need to respect the prayerful atmosphere of the cathedral. You can always just pop in if you are passing but in order to be sure to be able to welcome you advance notice and an agreed time would be helpful.
On September 9th we will hold an open day from around lunchtime with various events for all the Friends and donors of the BIC. Details to follow but please jot the date in your diary.
