it might not be too grand, but it will be open! the studio is finally taking shape, and i'll definitely be open for business soon - in fact, my "grand opening" will be this friday (5th december) at west kilbride's yule night festivities & late night shopping.
my new studio space is huge, with a ton of natural light (even in the dreich & dreary winter weather). & now that the stressful bit of getting ready is almost over, i'm starting to get pretty excited about it all! it's all thanks to the west kilbride craft initiative - a great project which is buying up vacant/derelict shop spaces on west kilbride's main street, and converting them into studios which are then rented out (at a very cheap rate!) to local artists & crafters.
the spaces are primarily working studios, but they're also open to the public - each artist sets their own opening hours, but all of us have to commit to a certain amount of hours per week. once i'm officially open, i'll be open wednesday to saturday from 12-4pm (although i'll most likely be there outwith those hours as well!) - so if you want to drop by please feel free!
& since i'm open to the public, i can now sell my yarn in person as well as online - look, i even have stuff in the window!!
how cool is that???
so if you're not busy this friday night, & you want to come say hi, please do - i'm in studio 99b, right on west kilbride's main street. wish me luck...
