Experimental Printmaking inspired by Mid Century Design in Derbyshire



Next promoted date: Friday 8th March 2024 - now fully booked. Join Liz Wellby on the edge of the Peak District for a fun and experimental day of printmaking inspired by mid century design. Taking our inspiration from a number of design sources, including mid-century design and the work of contemporary printmakers Jenni Douglas and Jane Ormes, we will explore patterns through mark-making, drawing and collage, with a mixed media approach. The composition will be developed as we create our own printing blocks and stamps before we refine our ideas and create a series of linocuts. This workshop will suit folks who are new to printmaking or those with some experience who wish to try something of a more experimental nature. Liz Wellby will host this workshop at her home studio, The Slipper Studio. The venue is beautifully presented with handcrafted workbenches and a wood burner, with views into the village. It is possible to arrange this workshop on different dates; should you wish to book 3 - 5 places for friends and family, the cost is £89 per person or £130 each for 2 people; please contact me via ‘message the tutor’ if this is of interest. About the tutor Liz Wellby is a versatile and experienced artist, teacher and maker, with a particular interest in sculpture and printmaking.
