We have been working on our new digs. The new space should be rather lovely by the time we have finished. Our first job is filling annoying cracks and bumps in ceiling, walls and floors. Then we will be on to painting. We are going for white and just a couple of shades of grey – hence the monochromatic theme to this post.
Our home-made blinds, made on my Grandma’s 1951 festival of Britain Singer Sewing machine, will be coming from the old studio. There will be four main areas. One for mount cutting and ‘putting in’, a retail area for prints and cards, and the two main ones of a gallery wall for framed work and a photographer’s studio for portraits, studio shoot and workshops.
We are aiming to be in at the beginning of July and definitely all ship shape for our grand ‘Open Studio&Gallery Warming’ on Sunday July 19th. Watch this space for more details of this event. If you’re wondering where the painter is going to be, she’s next door in a self contained messy space/padded cell.
