Create Paper Christmas Decorations at The Slipper Studio in Derbyshire

X

Description

Join artist, teacher and maker Liz Wellby, at The Slipper Studio on the edge of the Peak District and kick start your Christmas festivities. If your trips around the shops have lead you to believe that the decorations on sale are just plain tacky, how about taking a day out for yourself and learn how to make your own beautiful Christmas decorations using vintage papers? Learn the skills to continue creating further pieces at your kitchen table and make lovely gifts for your friends and family, but don’t be surprised if you keep them all for yourself. Liz will host the workshop in 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.

Liz now lives in a small village on the edge of the Peak District, working from her home studio, kept company by her husband and a kitten called Bert.
