El­speth’s work is dis­played in a mix of pub­lic and pri­vate spa­ces, and it is pos­si­ble to visit var­i­ous sites to see ex­am­ples of her art. When the small town of Dun­blane com­mis­sioned street sig­nage with char­ac­ter, El­speth worked along­side lo­cal school pupils. To­gether, they cre­ated two sign­posts and 12 mo­saic pan­els, which can be found on the Al­lan Wa­ter Bridge. Her works at Roys­ton Nurs­ery also in­volved lo­cal chil­dren, who helped to de­sign a new wa­ter play area out of re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als. She has also crafted a gate for Len­nox­town Ceme­tery and a dec­o­ra­tive screen as part of a char­ity me­mo­rial at New Dum­bar­ton Ceme­tery. A re­cent Her­itage Learn­ing Res­i­dency in Kirk­in­til­loch led to a se­ries of sculp­ture mark­ers sited along the Forth and Clyde Canal, com­mem­o­rat­ing the for­mer in­dus­tries which stood there.
