Description

Next promoted date: Thursday 8th September 2022 - fully booked. Join artist, teacher and maker Liz Wellby at The Slipper Studio, for a relaxing and creative day, creating tiny wire sculptures. Wild birds have such personalities and characteristics and are a lovely thing to capture using a combination of paper, metal and wire. The workshop is suitable for a range of abilities. 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.
