Description

Join artist, teacher and maker Liz Wellby at The Slipper Studio, for a creative and relaxing day. If you have ever considered designing and creating something to use in your home or thought about making personalised gifts for your family and friends, this is the workshop for you. Simply bring along your design ideas or images, patterns and shapes and learn how to translate these into a design, before cutting a stamp using Essdee Master Cut and printing your design. We will initially create paper and card based products, such as gift tags and gift wrap, before printing onto tea towels or tote bags. This workshop is suitable for people with a range of creative experiences, wishing to explore printing stamps onto paper and fabric. Liz will host the workshop at her home studio. The venue is beautifully presented, with handcrafted workbenches and a wood burner, with views down into the village. About the tutor Liz Wellby is a versatile and experienced artist, teacher and maker, with a particular interest in sculpture and printmaking. Following the completion of a Fine Arts degree at Loughborough University and subsequent post graduate studies, she returned to Derbyshire, where for over 25 years she lived and worked. Liz now lives on the edge of the Peak District, working from her studio, kept company by her husband and a cat called Bert.
