Meet Madame Gris At Hope & Elvis!

I'm so excited to let you know that there will be a brand new Mrs B workshop weekender at the wonderful Hope &Elvis on May 5th and 6th 2018!
It will be a whole weekend dedicated to the joys of paper and collage, and will be based on a new body of work that I've been snipping and drawing and sticking for quite a long time now.
Madame Gris will be the star of the show on the Sunday workshop, (alongside Monsieur Le Dandy, but you'll get to meet him another time!)
On this day we will be splashing the paint around preparing patterned and textured papers before collaging a creature of your choice.
I've really enjoyed developing these characters and I can't wait to share them with you!
And don't worry if you don't feel too confident about drawing because I will have sets of templates all ready for you on the day.
I can also help you if you want to make your own animal too, whatever takes your fancy!
On the Saturday workshop you will get to meet some other animal friends of mine and we will be playing with vintage paper and collage.
But I'll tell you more about that day soon!
All the details about both the workshops are on the Hope &Elvis website, there are a few places left if you fancy a day of chatting, snipping and playing!


  1. I was thinking how disappointed I would be not being able to draw as well as you. Then I scrolled down to the templates. Brilliant and generous! Sad that I can't join in. Have loads of fun.

    1. Thank you Kathleen,
      I'll blog lots of photos from the weekend to share with everyone.
      Big hugs xxx
