Well, after a few days of scrubbing, painting and lugging things about I have turned the grubby, spider infested out-house into a usable space for my creativity. And what a lovely little space, quiet and tucked away, you’d never know it was in the city center. It’s small and it’s certainly not slick and modern but it’s just what I’ve always wanted.
I’ve made it so that one side is an office space and the other a messy art space. It’s not completely finished yet but it’s so nice to have all of my bits together in one place and all at my fingertips instead of stacked away somewhere. It’s a bit tatty around the edges and quite twee but that’s part of it’s charm. I’ve never had a space like this to hide away in and get lost in my work… which is exactly what I need to do now as I’ve only a month left at university and still have a mountain of work to do! After that I can crack on with some self initiated projects whilst hunting for an internship somewhere… either that or I could get a job flipping burgers… maybe not.
So anyway, this is the grand opening of my studio space. Feel free to pop in and have a cuppa sometime. And to my fellow scribblers, feel free to come have a creative day with me as I have three work surfaces in here!
