My Studio:

In the fashionable West end of Glasgow you will find just a short way away from the University and its park, a lovely crescent with large residents gardens. Around those green heavens, Victorian tenements flats and large town houses have been standing for over 160 years offering spacious accommodation and working spaces to the residents of the area.

Its a lovely, green, quiet environment where we have set up roots a long while ago and it is there that in the stone floor workshop with the roaring fire in the winter and the fresh patio in the summer I design my stencils, I wax painted furniture for my clients. This is where I run workshops and design special projects.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his Art Nouveau (Glasgow Style in Glasgow) designs caught my interest many years ago and stencilling has always been my preferred technique and I will offer you my expertise for any project you have in mind.

Children classes:

I can organise stencilling classes for any size of party and I have experience in working with groups and classes.

I offer:

– ready made stencils in the style of Mackintosh, you can find those on (@thelansdownehouseofstencils) or just email me on with your requests.

– I will design on commissions for you, for any design email me on

– I offer a commission service and will stencil your interior, office etc… for details email me on

finally if you can’t find what you are looking for just drop me a line.

Happy stencilling.

Betty xx
