About the Course

Post Christmas and New Year, everyone needs a group hug to get them through the cold and dark winter days, so it’s the perfect time to join Liz Wellby at The Slipper Studio for a creative workshop. Taking inspiration from Russian dolls, you will explore 3 processes to create beautiful stamps to be used on card and fabric, detailed metal hanging decorations and vintage paper sculpture.

This will make a great Valentines experience for that special person in your life.

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.
