Fanfare please… new studio unvailed!

Bless my folks (there they are sitting down) who have spent the last fortnight either buiding me an extension to my existing workshop (Dad) or running around after my kids so I could catch up on some work (Mum). Both of whom did an amazing job. My Dad’s ability to make something out of nothing (a door and window from the recycling centre, some bits of wood, floorboards and sheet plastic) is a real skill. Our childhood’s were peppered with Dad’s various sheds, extensions to our house and other random building projects and when I ran out of space in the first one he built me he was happy to come and do the same again. Thank you Dad, I think you will agree he has done a fab job, as you can see we even let him have a day off for the Royal Wedding!

The extra space means I have a dedicated drawing area (looking out of the window onto our garden) a leading and cutting area, my light box is now usable cos its not covered in other work any more and I have a lot more storage. Due to the clear roof I have loads of natural light and it is a wonderful workspace, thanks so much Dad…now where was that list of things for you to do next time you visit???
