Tracey Akehurst reviewed: The First Cut - lino cutting for beginners & rusty printmakers

"From start to finish this was just a brilliant day. Liz made us feel so welcome we felt instantly at home and relaxed. Liz is a excellent teacher, with oodles of patience and a great sense of humour. She also provided us with a steady supply of hot/cold drinks, chocolate biscuits and fruit! Her studio is a beautifully calm space with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Working in a small group (five of us) we learnt the different aspects of linocutting, practising with different surfaces and cutting tools, before going on to create our own linocut, after which we experimented with different coloured inks and papers to produce our own unique images. Liz continually guided us through the process with plenty of encouragment and suggestions. We returned home with slightly inky fingers, many prints and a huge sense of achievement. What a result! I would highly recommend coming along to this workshop. I can't wait to do some more. Many thanks for such a lovely day. I highly recommend Liz’s workshops, and I look forward to learning something new on another one."

Liz Wellby - Artist, Teacher & Maker responded:

" Hi Tracey, Thank you so much for your review; feeling slightly overwhelmed with your lovely comments! You both produced some lovely images and have nailed your Christmas cards; I hope Alain is planning a trip to the framers with his lino cut. It was lovely working with you both and would love to see you back at The Slipper Studio. Best wishes Liz Wellby."

Gaynor Lewis reviewed: Block Printing on fabric in Derbyshire.

"Liz made sure that this workshop provided plenty of time to learn lino cutting techniques and use it to print on fabric. I was so impressed to go home with so many finished pieces including a fabulous tea-towel and some tote bags, plus gift tags and gift paper all made with my very own fair hands! I have done lino cutting with Liz before but printing on fabric was a new venture for me and well worth learning this extra step. Liz gave lots of tips about design,colour and inks, which was really helpful, and I loved the results. The Slipper Studio is a real haven for anyone who wants a creative break, I will certainly be going back."

Liz Wellby - Artist, Teacher & Maker responded:

" Hi Gaynor, Thanks for taking the time to review your workshop and I am really pleased that you enjoyed a relaxing and productive day. You produced some lovely outcomes - I am quite envious of your fish stamp! Look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes Liz Wellby"

ANDREA GAYE HYTCH reviewed: Create with a gel printing plate in Derbyshire

"This was a well planned, well resourced workshop session on Gel Plate printing. The facilities were excellent and 'The Slipper Studio' provided a lovely, airy and well lit venue, that was very conducive to creative work. Liz gave very informative instructions and preformed clear demonstrations, with plenty of samples available to see possible outcomes. Good one-to-one guidance was given, with practical suggestions as to techniques, colour choices, forward development etc. The workshop was well structured to make good use of the day and I felt that my knowledge had improved by the end of it. I came away with a variety of gel prints that I'm really pleased with. Gel printing is a process that offers a lot of creative freedom and is therefore suitable for anyone, regardless of skill. I loved the spontaneity of approach and the immediacy of the effects achieved. Highly recommended!"

Liz Wellby - Artist, Teacher & Maker responded:

" Hi Andrea, Thanks so much for your review. Really pleased that you had productive day and hope this process is one you can continue with. Good luck with this new phase in your life. Best wishes Liz Wellby"

Anne Holloway reviewed: Create with a gel printing plate in Derbyshire

"Brilliant workshop - the studio space is amazing and I received a lovely warm welcome from Liz. Liz managed the workshop at the right pace with plenty of time to experiment with our work. She was always available for advice and suggestions if needed. It was very satisfying to be able to bring home lots of Gelli prints - I felt as if I had achieved something inspirational because this workshop gets you to think about colour combinations, layering colour etc. I feel re-motivated and will hopefully be able to transfer what I have learned into my glass fusing."

Liz Wellby - Artist, Teacher & Maker responded:

" So pleased that you had such a great day. It was lovely working with you and I appreciated your positivity to my advice and ideas. Really hope that you can get some new glass pieces underway - I think your new images have lots of potential. Best wishes Liz Wellby"
