Experimental printmaking in Derbyshire inspired by mid century design

In-person course
Fiona Rogers - - #33466

I had a lovely day on Liz Wellby's Experimental Printmaking course. She covered so much ground in such a short time so I came away feel inspired and with a lot of new ideas. I would love it if the course was two days so that I could have really plumbed the depths of Liz's knowledge. Loved my generous little goody bag with lolly, too. Thank you, Liz - a great day in your beautiful studio and garden.

Response from Liz Wellby - Artist, Teacher & Maker:

Hi Fiona,

Thanks you for reviewing your workshop and so pleased that you enjoyed your day here.

You have planted a seed re extending this workshop to two days. A great idea.

Hope to see you again at The Slipper Studio.

A thoroughly enjoyable day - very well organised and "safe" (as we had to maintain social distancing) - a bonus to be able to eat lunch in the lovely garden. I learnt a lot from Liz during the day and came away with a set of prints which I was really pleased with.

Response from Liz Wellby - Artist, Teacher & Maker:

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for taking time to review your day.

Really pleased that you had a good time and you created a beautiful set of prints.

Cathy Fagan - - #29672

Lovely day spent with Liz learning Gelli Printing in a lovely light space and beautiful setting.

We had plenty of time to experiment with different techniques and were encouraged all the way. The course was set at the right pace and for the right number of people.

Can't wait to have a go at home and use alongside other crafts/printing projects.

Would highly recommend the course and Liz's hospitality.

Response from Liz Wellby - Artist, Teacher & Maker:

Hi Cathy,

Thanks for your lovely comments and for spending the day here.

Gel printing is such a lively and reactive process and will take you on lots of lovely new creative journeys and keep you sane over the next few months.

The course was well organised and the facilities were excellent.

The tuition and demonstrations were of a high standard.

The limit to 4 or 5 people on the course allowed for individual help to be given, and materials provided were plentiful.

The day was thoroughly enjoyable.

Thank you
Bob

Engaging workshop in the tutor’s own home studio, lovely space and ambience. Liz is very supportive and encouraging and makes the course enjoyable for everyone, whatever their degree of ability. Small group of learners so as much individual support as needed and a very friendly atmosphere. An interesting and enjoyable day.
