About the Course

Join artist, teacher and maker Liz Wellby at The Slipper Studio on the edge of the Peak District, for an Autumn inspired workshop and create your own “Harvest Festival”.

Exploring the theme of Fabulous Fruit and Flowers in Autumn, you will create a veritable cornucopia of 2 and 3D outcomes. In the morning you will have the opportunity to design and cut your own stamps and create unique cards, gift tags and hanging decorations. The afternoon will be set aside to create beautiful free standing paper sculptures made from vintage paper; using a deceptively simple process you will be surprised with the quality of your outcomes. Learn the skills to continue creating further pieces at your kitchen table.

Liz will host the workshop at her studio. The venue is beautifully presented, with handcrafted workbenches and a wood burner, with views down into the village.
