18 months ago we completed converting our double garage into a studio. I’ve never had a properly-equipped and stocked dedicated studio before … this is a real step up. Most of the time that went into the conversion was the […]
Studio - a-n The Artists Information Company
Alas! After 20 years of living in “paradise” my landlady died and I had to move. The chocolate-box cottage backing onto a nature reserve gave me all I needed: studio, office, venue, group meeting areas, family accommodation, a spare room […]
Often when I am in the studio or just going about things I make (mental) notes of things to write about. Last week it was about ‘packing’ – specifically how I was packing artworks to deliver to a large group […]
I have not had much time in the studio lately but now realise that what I thought was wasted time is erroneous. Subconsciously, ideas and thoughts wander round your brain wherever you are. The studio, for me, is a place […]
My first meeting with Anna – my mentor on the Konsten att delta (the Art of Participation) programme – went well. We chatted over tea and cake at the studio. The programme matches native Swedish artists with non-native artists now […]
I am currently transforming my studio – I’ve moved and painted the exterior blue, the interior has now been insulated, I’ve painted it white and building shelves and worktops. It is an equally big transformation for me psychologically as I […]
This blog documents a self-initiated, studio-based project of artist development as a response to a rejection to a mentoring scheme.
Dividing up the space Why as artists do we do what in our art? Is there always a clear answer? How much of what we do is planned and delivered according to plan and how much is instinctive or happy […]
I’ve been scratching my head trying to think what to write about this month. When I review the art I have been working on it all seems rather paltry, although I know I have been busy. This has led me […]
Studio space to share in Sowerby Bridge – suitable for artists or designer/makers 500sqft – £180/month Details: I have a ceramics studio set up in an industrial unit at the Asquith Bottom Mills in Sowerby Bridge. I am […]
I am carrying on with my studio still-life studies. Originally I was going to take a no frills approach and keep it pure and simple. However as I look and as I work, I find it impossible to do so. […]
I am looking for a studio in Hertfordshire or Cambridgeshire. Look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
I have to 2 defined spaces, within a larger communal unit, available now. We are a collection of artists and makers based in central Brighton, on the top floor of the un-glorious New England House industrial block. Long term lease, […]
Ceramic studio space close to North Greenwich, London Se18, available to let for a part time potter in a professional ceramic studio shared with maximum three other ceramicists. The studio is led by a professional ceramicist and equipped with sink with […]
At 9.30 this morning I am going to meet three artists at the studio – hopefully they are interested in sharing the other large space. A fourth artist who is also interested in being part of the studio […]
The new studio is going ahead! Klas signed the paperwork and now we are just waiting on getting the keys*. It is fantastic and is going to make a huge difference in my life – I cannot describe how much […]
As the school is on half term this week I have had some studio time to reflect on additional elements to introduce into our sessions. I am now thinking about the view of the audience when they watch the film […]
My latest series of work is focusing on interiors and objects – specifically my studio and my home. So far I have been looking at my studio but to be honest, I’m not really sure what I’m doing. I’ve been […]
studio activity, February 2018.
Thank you to PIXEL PRESS and NEW NORTH PRESS for their generous invitation and spending time answering my questions and exploring their studios. I was in awe!
The possibility of a new studio is simultaneously good and shifting. The landlord and leasing agent (a local housing association) are keen for us to take over the lower ground floor rooms of an old school gymnastics hall – which […]
This project is a continuation of the performance #work where I used the action of spinning a plate that highlighted the accessibility of this simple prop. In this blog I will document my project research & development.
I’m exhausted. I don’t know whether it’s just a post-Christmas feeling or seeing the end of a particularly challenging year. Depleted of inspiration; I haven’t been anywhere or seen anything to spark an interest. The grey skies mirror my outlook. […]
[Thursday] Tomorrow Klas and I have another look at a potential new studio. I really want, and need, to find somewhere to settle and get on with making. Without such a place it is all to easy for me to […]
