Home Hand craftsmanship and attention to detailAbout St. John's Workshop St. John's Workshop specializes in custom woodwork for church communities. From furniture to liturgical implements to icon screens and icon panels. We use traditional techniques and natural finishes, one of which is true gesso over pure linen cloth as a suitable surface for all paint mediums. This is the finish found on all traditionally painted icon boards both in homes and temples. Quality and communication sets us apart from other suppliers. Let us help you with your needs!
