The Heart and Home of Creative Experiences

I'm Louise Presley an artist and professional gatherer of stuff. My background is in fashion and I worked in commercial textiles before setting up Hope & Elvis in 2003. Situated at Welbeck, North Nottinghamshire I curate a program of creative experiences with leading artists and contemporary makers.

Join us for a relaxed day with dedicated time for yourself, space to work freely in, unlimited materials and inspirational artists.

"I just wanted to thank you for the chance to come on Jessie's workshops. I had a wonderful time! Beautiful projects and amazing studio! Delicious lunches! Friendly ladies! I'm really looking forward to visiting again. I'm searching the loft for all my embroidery bits, I've reawakened a past love!"Magie. 2016
