Beaucatcher salon

A Christmas window…

Beaucatcher Salon, where Lydia had her Hair Lines exhibition in Summer 2018, has asked Lydia to draw on its shop window. It’s all for a Stoke Newington Church Street local shopping night with collections for charity.

Starting with an idea by Beaucatcher’s stylists, the main window has Santa having his beard styled. Knowing the salon well, Lydia has given Santa luscious waves and each Christmas fairy a different up-do. She’s added a bauble-transporting elf on the door and two fairies carrying a comb across the facing window curtain.

Drawing at this scale, in this setting, has unique challenges. Read about what was involved in our blog.

The window won Best In Street, voted for by shoppers at Stoke Newington Church Street’s Christmas Night in Stokey, a community ‘shop local’ night with collections for charity.
