Mostly we've had to do very boring stuff like get the workshop/studio signed off by building control (which is still on going!), Rich suddenly got loads of work come in at the beginning of September so has been pretty busy since then leaving very little time to do the fun stuff, also we are now pretty much out of cash so we either have to wait till we've earned it or try to get the bit and pieces we need as cheap as possible with take longer to source!
I did manage to get some new chairs for the studio, Rich had a very cool but unfortunately rather uncomfortable vintage office chair which wasn't giving his back enough support and I liked the idea of having matching chairs as both our desk will be totally different. I managed to get these of gumtree for £25 for the pair...
I've been picking other bits up over the last 2 months, back in September I found these amazing original grey 1950s curtain in Shropshire for £60, they just about cover the studio doors which will help soften the rather hard edged breeze block walls and make it a bit cosier to work in the space after dark. Still haven't got round to fitting them as yet as we'll have to custom make the curtain pole needed.
We also picked up this super cool ammonite fossil from Dorset back in August which will look great in the studio (once I have somewhere to put it!).
One of the other things that has kept me busy over the last few weeks has been building our new website and Facebook page, as we have our spanking new studio space Rich and I decided to join forces as artists. For the last month we've been taking part in Inktober over on Facebook, check us out if your feeling inclined!
