Tidy studio


At long last my studio is finally tidy!! I thought I would share some photographs as I don't expect it will remain so neat for long...It really is so nice to have a clearer space for making & thinking!
It didn't take me long to fill those empty cubes...
Gran's old Kilner jars with my 'collections'
Little drawers full of etching....
  
Much more light now the partition has gone




Now that I'm all sorted I am sitting down to plan WORKSHOPS!! I know I've been promising them for a while now...but details will definitely be available very SOON!
