“The workshop and your tuition was inspiring. I went home created an art space and began designing…”

“For me working with other people at the same large table is like sharing a meal.”

“I can not believe that in just a few hours I learned two new skills and made such a lovely book”

My name is Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw, French born Glasgow based artist, I studied Decorative Arts with Christies. I work with Heritage stencilling and have recently recreated schemes from the Mackintosh Heritage in Scotland.

I travel to Asia every year and I have developed from my trips a love for Eco Techniques. Indigo dyeing, Eco dyeing, Eco Printing. I started my Eco journey in northern Thailand with lovely ladies from the Hmong Hill tribes. I share my skills in Scotland running workshops and doing collaborative work. I team with local galleries to share my art pieces.

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 Here just email me on bettysbeautifullife@gmail.com with your requests.

Happy stencilling.
