Exploring experimental collographs in Derbyshire
Join artist and maker Liz Wellby on the edge of the Peak District, with an introduction to collographs. Collographs are an interesting type of print; they can be printed by hand or run through a press and printed as relief or intaglio. Exploring the theme of Rhythm & Pattern, or a theme of your choice, we will create drawings and collage and develop 2 dynamic plates, before printing a lively range of outcomes. This workshop is suitable for those with art/craft experiences now wishing to try a new process or those with experience of other printing techniques, who now wish to try a more experimental method of working; be prepared for an upper body work out. Liz will host the workshop at her studio - The Slipper 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.

Liz now lives in a small village on the edge of the Peak District, working from her home studio - The Slipper Studio, kept company by her husband and a cat called Bert.
