Jessie Chorley Workshop

Anne was lucky enough to attend another really interesting and enjoyable workshop at Hope and Elvis studio at Welbeck recently by Jessie Chorley.

Jessie and her friend Buddug have a shop in London at 158a Columbia Road and their work can be seen on their blog and also bought from their website

Here are some pictures from the day, the first is of Jessie working in the studio.

Here are some of the ladies busily making, they were given old cutlery boxes and encouraged to make a scene within the box or use it as a box to express memories.

Jessie brought along a few of her own pieces with her, here is just a small (but beautiful) collection.

Finally some pictures of Anne’s box. She decided to make a peg into a small lady and the box was used as a room behind her.

The dressing table and stool were made from florist wire and the small beaded picture behind the lady was hung from an old lace bobbin.

A small LED light was attached by Anne’s husband to light up the room, which now has pride of place on the mantelpiece.
