About the Course
Join artist, teacher and maker Liz Wellby, at The Slipper Studio on the edge of the Peak District and create your own handcrafted Christmas decorations.
Make a little time for yourself before the whirl of Christmas descends, spending a leisurely day designing and making a range of wire and metal hanging and free standing decorations. Create beautiful gifts for your friends and family or may just want to keep them for yourself.
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 Liz for an absolutely brilliant day. From the moment I arrived I felt very welcome and my apprehension quickly dissolved in the warmth of your welcome and light and airy studio. Your introductory pack was carefully and thoughtfully presented, your instructions clear and inspiring. You made everything seem possible even for a complete clumsy novice. I came with no preconceptions only the desire to learn how to be creative, never having had any previous training but a great longing to be more creative and practical.
The day was very enjoyable, great fun and most of all inspiring , I have already planned to make some more birds and metal decorations for Christmas gifts. My confidence and imagination have been ignited. I am looking forward to attending more workshops with you next year.
