About the Course

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.

Thank you for your positivity and really pleased you enjoyed your day.

Looking forward to some experimental printmaking with you in March.

Liz makes you feel really welcome and at home in her studio. She provides a personalised touch for those attending and presents her workshop in an easy to follow way. I have learnt so many things during the workshop, I can’t wait to try them out at home.
