Doodling with Lisa Stickley at Hope & Elvis

Lisa Stickley

From time to time there's a workshop that you just don't want to miss.  Actually this happens a lot at Hope & Elvis who always have a fab selection of workshops on offer.  On this occasion, it was "Doodling on Cloth" taken by the talented Lisa Stickley.  Lisa trained as a textile designer and has collaborated with many high brow and high street names and is not only a designer but author and illustrator too!

It's always lovely to do a workshop at Hope & Elvis as there are loads of interesting things to see around the place...

Mr Crab

Mr Fish

I chose Mr Crab & Mr Fish to show you because of all the fab Fantasy Fish I've been dealing with this summer.  But there are also fantastic things to rummage through to choose what you want to work with...

Lovely things to work with

and fabric too...
Vintage & modern fabrics

And then it's time to make a start - printing, crayoning, collaging, stitching and so on using Lisa's inspiration, stamps, thermofax screens and transfer papers and all the lovely Hope & Elvis vintage papers and fabrics - yummy...

Fabric, paper, photos, prints, stitching, crayoning

There's still lots of work to do on these pieces but I've had a great time getting this far!  Thanks both to Lisa, & Hope & Elvis!
