About the Course

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.

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.

What a treat! A fantastic day exploring paper and methods to produce beautiful decorations and home features using recycled paper. The atmosphere was so relaxing with the fire on and music playing whilst we were being creative! Highly recommend this course with Liz.

Response from Liz Wellby - Artist, Teacher & Maker:

Thank you.

So pleased that you enjoyed yourself and had sometime to relax.

Hope you are continuing making your decorations.
