Last time I was talking about how progress isnt linear – and in the light of recent activities I reckon its much more like a spider diagram in fact!
I’m preparing for an Open Studio as part of Powys Arts Month . As there are 5 of us at the studio we are putting on a few events. I am organisng a pop-up makers market to encourage people to buy original art and craft and to enable a bit more networking amongst creatives in the area. This is taking pesident over getting my studio ready and it feels like I am making very slow progress.
In addition we are tidying and painting throughout the building which is all part of sharing a space – sharing the load of jobs that need doing to get ready. This is a good insight into how working as an artist after graduation might be – lots of organising and sometimes not so much creative time and a constant drive to find a happy balance. Its all worth it tho – I’m growing in confidence and having good conversations with creative types – very valuable. Here is a link to how wonderful it was at our studios for the last Powys Arts Month www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.261914920511626&type=1
