Due to the ongoing situation with COVID19, the following workshops are sadly postponed. It is hoped that two new dates will be available at Buxton Museum and Gallery in the Autumn and as soon as it’s safe to start running workshops from The Slipper Studio, new dates will be advertised.
Lino Cutting Workshop with Liz Wellby at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery
Join me at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery and create a lino cut inspired by the Between Two Worlds exhibition.
Following time viewing the exhibition, we will cover developing your ideas into designs, safe cutting techniques and hand printing.
This one day workshop will introduce you to one colour lino cutting and printing. This is the perfect introduction to this addictive print process, with a particular focus on how you may continue developing your skills in your own home.
Saturday 6th June, 10 – 4pm, for a maximum of 12 people, £30 – a subsidised price, including: materials, use of equipment and refreshments; just bring lunch or visit a local cafe.
Tickets are available from Eventbrite or contact the museum for further details: 01629 533540.
Taking our inspiration from a number of design sources, including mid century design and the work of contemporary printmakers such as Jenni Douglas and Jane Ormes, we will explore abstract pattern through mark making, drawing and collage, with a mixed media approach.
Composition will be developed by creating our own experimental printing blocks and stamps, before we refine our ideas and experiences to develop a series of lino cuts.
Saturday 13th June, 10 – 4pm, a maximum of 5 people, £65, including: materials, use of equipment, and refreshments; just bring your lunch.
Create Tiny Wire Bird Sculptures
Wild and domestic birds have such personalities and characteristics and are a lovely thing to capture, using a combination of vintage papers and wire.
Join me for a relaxing and creative day, creating tiny sculptures. We will work through a number of stages, enabling you to create your own small scale sculptures, with your initial ideas being sketched and explored through collage and then developed using fine, flexible wire; you will leave with a range of outcomes.
Saturday 27th June, 10 – 4pm, a maximum of 5 people, £65, including: materials, use of equipment and refreshments; just bring your lunch.
