I rearranged my studio a few months ago and thought I would take a few photos and post them … it is perennially untidy and disorganised and I still can’t remember the new places I stored everything but hopefully it will stay this way for a year or two at least. I do seem to enjoy moving my stuff around as much as I do using it!
This is my printing table, with a large (8’ by 4’ I think) piece of MDF on top to make it big enough to screen pieces of fabric without having to keep moving them along. It is comparatively uncluttered in this photo, believe it or not – you should see it at the moment! The MDF is actually resting on two tables at right angles to each other and my sewing machine is on the other half of the second. There are quite a few things stored underneath the tables too!
I keep lots of stuff on these shelves and in the ‘column’ which my husband acquired from his office when they changed their filing system. It holds lots of sewing and knitting equipment – knitting needles, patterns, thread, needles, zips, ribbon… those shallow drawers are quite useful for small items. I have printing and stamping stuff on the open shelves and an assortment of stuff in the filing cabinet – electrical things like heat gun and soldering iron in one drawer, skeins of yarn in another.
These wooden shelves run the length of the room – my books are at one end, brushes and mark making equipment at the other and fabric in the middle…
Here is some of the fabric (a small part) all rolled up so I can see it end on.
My design wall is in front of these shelves and it is on wheels so I can move it to get to them.
All my paper and gocco accessories are in these stacking baskets in the corner of the room. And by the window, more stacking baskets with paint and stuff like that – of course, they always overflow on to the floor as well!
