Over the next few days we will be hosting an ‘open studios’ event as part of ‘Cowal Open Studios’. (This is our page.)
This involves showing people the spaces in which we create things- the pottery, my shed- and also displaying and selling stuff we have made.
Currently our dining room is full of all sorts of lovely things.
It made me think again about how we create spaces for particular uses. Our old house has changed hugely over the last ten years, not just in the sense that we have spent a lot of time money and energy in restoring and mending, but also because we have given space purpose. The main purposes have been either to provide hospitality, or to create. The Open Studios event combines both, and so it is a great thing to be part of.
If you are in the area, please come along. You can have a play with some clay and share a cup of tea.
I will be round the back in a cloud of dust, shaping wood and listening to music. Probably best avoided, but I am happy to show you my space…
