Liz Wellby – Fine Art

Make time to Relax, Learn and Create at The Slipper Studio


Liz is an experienced teacher and practitioner, running very well received creative workshops throughout the East Midlands. Her workshops are designed and tailored to meet specific themes, briefs and for the needs of groups, be they for an Arts Society or a friendship group. Liz will be happy to discuss planning and delivering a workshop at a selected venue, with a theme or process of your choice.


You may join Liz at her home studio - The Slipper Studio, in the small village of Carsington, situated between Matlock and Ashbourne, for her planned series of workshops throughout the year. The studio is beautifully presented, with handcrafted workbenches and a wood burner, with stunning views down into the village. It is a place to relax, learn and create in a lovely, calm environment. Places are limited to 5, with plenty of opportunities for individual support and advice. On a sunny day lunch can be eaten in her peaceful garden. Alternatively you may wish to book a workshop for your friends and family or focus on your own creative interests with individual tuition.
