I was soooo nervous! I'd been to the studio two years ago for a Dottie Angel and Ted & Agnes crafty day, but had never attempted a mixed-media workshop before. Originality, paint and getting messy are not words that could ever be associated with me! Thankfully I knew there were going to be cakes so at least I could spend all day munching if nothing else!
|Work by the talented Mister Finch|
I'm pleased to say, she is totally adorable, very passionate about what she does, and so funny. I had a wonderful time with her, and her assistant Sam (who reads this blog - or so she says) and laughed, and laughed all day.
I also got to catch up with Caroline who I met last time I was at the studio, and some other bloggy woman who calls herself Daisy Jones tagged on to me and didn't leave my side!!!!! It was the best day ever.
|Who is this crazy woman?!|
Lots of different sorts of crafting, by all sorts of very different people. I have to say, I didn't quite know where to begin but in the end I made a picture on wood to put up in Agatha van, and a fabric piece too that hubby says cannot possibly be a broach but should be hung up somewhere (out of sight probably)!
I also treated myself to something made by Letitia herself - there was lots to choose from but in the end I went for this lovely bag - gorgeous isn't it!
Letitia also bought us all a present - how gorgeous is this? It's been put straight into Agatha van for safekeeping!
If you haven't been up to Hope & Elvis I would definitely recommend it. Louise has lots and lots of very talented people visit, so do pop over to her website and look at the workshop list to see what's going on or coming up.
I'll be back for sure (if they'll have me)!
