The Heart and Home of Creative Experiences

Hello, I'm Louise Presley a textile artist and professional treasure hunter. I have a large studio with an equally large collection of delights contained within it. My background is in fashion and and in 2003 I decided to follow my own star and set up Hope & Elvis.

From the tranquil Harley Foundation studios situated in the grounds of Welbeck Abbey, North Nottinghamshire I curate a program of creative experiences with leading artists and contemporary makers. Join me 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
