Further details

Visitors to Glasgow's House for an Art Lover will be familiar with Elisabeth's stunning interpretation of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's designs realised in 1996. In the same year a major retrospective Charles Rennie Mackintosh exhibition featured her recreation of the 78 Derngate 1916 stencil scheme. More recently she has worked at The Hunterian's Mackintosh House ( the reconstructed interiors of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's own home ) and also the George Walton Scottish house "Ault Wharrie". She lives in Glasgow with her husband and runs "The Lansdowne House of Stencils".

Elisabeth has taught hundreds of people her special techniques of stencilling at regular workshops in and around Glasgow.

We are delighted to host her for the first time in England at 78 Derngate.
