New - It’s only Natural - creating small wire sculpture in Derbyshire



Next promoted date: Saturday 29th October. Join me at The Slipper Studio on the edge of the beautiful Peak District, for a relaxing and creative day. Fine and flexible wire is a lovely material to work with, enabling you to create characterful objects, with a drawn-like quality to them and all without causing harm to your hands. We will explore joining techniques, wrapping, shaping and sculpting wire, create a range of small, decorative pieces of sculpture inspired by nature and natural forms; they are sure to take pride of place in your home. This workshop will suit folks with experience of different creative processes and techniques. About the tutor Liz Wellby is a versatile and experienced artist, teacher and maker, with a particular interest in sculpture and printmaking. Following the completion of a Fine Arts degree at Loughborough University and subsequent post graduate studies, she returned to Derbyshire, where for over 25 years she has lived and worked. Home for Liz, her husband and a cat called Bert, is now a small village on the edge of the Peak District.
