I started this year off with an open studio… I announced it on Facebook and honestly thought I’d probably end up spending the morning in the studio on my own. My new studio is super tiny – slightly bigger than the bedroom I was originally working in, so my other anxiety-inducing thought was ‘What if too many people come?’
It ended up being a stinking hot sunny day – 37 degrees – so I immediately assumed that would keep people at home, but it turns out I was wrong! A range of people visited as the morning progressed – some just wanted a look around and a chat, others joined in with what I was doing, and some even brought their own projects to work on. It was a wonderful way to build some inspiration!!
Based on the feedback I had, and inquiries from those unable to come, I’ve decided to have regular open studio days throughout the year. AND I’ve just put in AC so can guaranteed the perfect temperature!!
