Create beautiful paper Sculpture
If you are in need of a creative pick up, come along to The Slipper Studio and learn how to create beautiful paper sculpture. Using a deceptively simple process, you will learn how to make your own templates and create a cornucopia of hanging and free standing paper sculptures, including hearts and fruits from vintage papers and old books, before moving onto tea cups, jugs or tea pots, which are the stars of the show.
Once you have learnt the techniques at the workshop, and with just a few basic pieces of equipment, you will be able to design and create your own sculptural forms at home.
Friday 1st July, 10 – 4pm, with just 3 places (to allow for social distancing), £79, including: most materials and use of equipment, plus refreshments; just bring your lunch.
Experimental Printmaking inspired by Mid Century Design
Taking our inspiration from Mid Century Design and contemporary printmakers such as Jane Ormes and Jenny Douglas, we will explore pattern through mark making, drawing and collage. Composition will be developed by creating experimental print blocks and stamps, before we refine our ideas and experiences to develop a series of lino cuts. You will also have your lino block, print blocks and stamps to take home and continue using.
Friday 8th July, 10 – 4pm, just 3 places to allow for social distancing, £79 per person, including: tuition, use of equipment, materials, plus refreshments served throughout the day; just bring your lunch.

A day of Drawing with Line & Wire
“I sometimes think that there is nothing so delightful as drawing”, Van Gogh.
If you agree with Van Gogh and an experienced artist, or count yourself as an absolute beginner, it’s a worthwhile practice to spend time exploring your drawing skills.
Starting with the principle that everyone can draw, you will focus on learning to look, plan your ideas and create a series of drawings. Working on different types of paper and using a range of materials, you will draw natural forms with a particular focus on their linear and pattern qualities. There will also be the opportunity to develop ‘drawings’ using fine flexible wire.
This creative workshop is suitable for folks who count themselves as a beginner or those who haven’t drawn for a while and may feel the need to brush up on the basics.
Monday 11th July, 10 – 4pm, just 3 places to allow for social distancing, £79 per person, including: tuition, use of equipment, materials, plus refreshments served throughout the day; just bring your lunch.
