The new studio is well worn in now, with several workshops and a couple of warps accomplished in the last few weeks. There are still a few things to do around the place, including putting up some weaving! To get things up and running we focused on the tools rather than the products of the weaving process. Furthermore, with all those windows, wall space is scarce and my priorities were shelves, shelves and then shelves. Also hooks: I do like hooks. Now those are dealt with we can see what space is left (not a lot) and think about what to put in it. Knowing me, this will take several months and many changes of mind, so don’t hold your breath unless you are an experienced pearl diver.
Here’s a quick tour of the studio as it looked yesterday afternoon:
There have been other exciting changes going on in the background, and you can see one of them in my new website logo and colour scheme. I have been working with Helen Wyllie, a fabulous graphic designer in East Lothian, to create a new look for my Bonny Claith label which I will be launching later in the summer. She has also created this connected-but-distinct fresh new look for my Cally Booker Handweaver identity, so I am gently starting the relaunch process with a spring-clean of this site.
I can hardly wait to share the rest of the redesign with you, but must… be… patient…
