The Heart and Home of Creative Experiences

I'm Louise Presley an 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.
