Some may call it the laundry room, school room, storage room (gah!) or even simply the art room, but I really want to call it the Studio.
It has a great ring to it. Don't you think?
It has the sound of intention. A word that designates a space with the power to make things happen. To create a mindset right when you cross the threshold. To create a world where it is possible to take folded up bits of fabric, wash them, press them, measure and cut them, then with the simplest supplies and the power of a simple machine, make them into something functional, playful, or just plain beautiful.
And if you don't finish it all in one day the studio does not mind a bit. Just leave it out until tomorrow or whenever you get back to that creation in progress. That is what the studio is for...
A dedicated space for making all matter of creations in their own time, at their own pace, in their own space.
This little studio of ours is a work in progress itself. A few additions will help it become a true place for us all to create. A small table for the kiddos, a bit more organization in those closets (oh, the closets... joy), a "clothes" line for hanging things in need of dry time...
But for now... it is our studio and we work around each other, spread out, spill over in the dinning room and best of all... create more!
These photos where taken yesterday after some projects were wrapped up and put on display in the living room... Now it is all ready for that stack of fabric on the chair and the creation of a new diorama in the planning.
I would love to hear about your spaces or dreams of future spaces...
Do you have a dedicated space to create? What do you like best about it?
If you don't what would be your dream space?
