Thanks for hanging in there people, I know it’s been a while between posts but you know,we’ve been busy, reeeeeeal busy.
So, without further ado, here are some photos of the almost-ready-to-work-from DEAD + BURIED WORKSHOP!!!!
(some of these are a bit blurry, sigh, seems I should have taken the tripod or used a flash, oh well)
view from the kitchen… new desks, restored desks, and our ‘machine shop’ with perspex window
super sized clock from eBay. Dirty window. Lamp.
the view back toward the shop (unfinished), showing our newly clad wall and the couch.
Dani has started working already……. I’m jealous.
Shoe lasts being sorted into styles and sizes… lots to choose from now!
We have all the desks in situ now, most of our walls sorted, kitchen sorted, machine shop semi equipped and sexy up-lighting plugged in and ready to go. There are still about a dozen things-to-do on the list, but on the whole we’re ready to start working from our little kingdom as of this week. We have an advertisement pending on Creative Spaces and will hit up the social media universe later this week in the hunt for 2 perfect studio pals (or 4 if we have to do a part time share thing)
Again, if you’re reading this and know of a fashion-oriented jeweller or two who is looking for a space, get them to EMAIL US!!
We want to find people we’d love to work with rather than just have to offer the spaces to any ol’ person because we’re strapped for cash.
On the shoemaking front, I have been back at the drawing desk starting to flesh out some ideas, and am being all proactive and FLYING up to Sydney next week on a whim to look at some suppliers up there… the few down here in Melbourne are leaving me a little underwhelmed. Hopefully I return with a bag full of goodies and a head full of inspiration!
