About the Course

If you are a keen cook, you are sure to have a fine collection of kitchenalia in your home, with pots and drawers rammed full of whisks, fish slices and ladles. We value them for their practical use to help use create our favourite dishes, but I feel we should also look at the satisfying range of shapes and forms in their design. Who can resist a set of 1960’s utensils with their lovely painted handles?

Join me at The Slipper Studio on Sunday 26th April to explore the shapes and patterns found in kitchenalia. With a particular focus on exploring line, we will experiment with a number of materials and processes to create lively and imaginative drawings, before we try our hand at developing images using a fine and flexible wire. Who wouldn’t want to create a wire fish or a decorative wire utensil?

This one day workshop is suitable for both beginners or folks who have experience with a range of creative processes and techniques.

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; the village of Carsington lies on the edge of the Peak District.
