Searching for a new studio
I am also trying to find some studio space to rent for a while, as I don't want to work in a small apartment until we find a house to purchase.
I have had outside studio's before, and love having a place away from home to work. I can decorate the space exactly how I wish, and I feel like I am able to concentrate more on my work than when I am working from my home.
How about you? What is your studio like? Do you have a dedicated space for your creative play or work time?
My brother and I will be collaborating on a written project as soon as I move to Fayetteville, and we were discussing the importance of having a physical space to do our work together that allows for a comfortable and open creative environment.
For me, when it comes to making jewelry, it means having space to put all of my creative materials where I can easily access them; and for metal work, I aim to have safety as my main priority.
Creating a safe and creatively nurturing space for myself, no matter what its purpose, helps me so much with the quality, as well as quantity, of work I am able to produce.
If I can find a good space to rent, I am also going to splurge on getting a real jeweler's bench. I have my eye on a few pre-made ones, as well as some fairly easy to build bench plans.
