I moved my C3 Lab studio from a private office into the shared maker space.
I left the four grey walls, temperature control and the door with my name on it.
Now I’m in a giant garage-like space with a dozen other artists and makers.
This space has neither AC nor heat.
It’s hot in the summer and frigid in the winter.
There’s sawdust everywhere.
And dead bugs on my windowsill.
If you know me,
You’re probably thinking this new space triggers all my obsessive-compulsive tendencies.
Upon arrival each day, I do spend the first 15 minutes wiping and sweeping sawdust off everything.
But you know what?
I LOVE being in the maker space!
I love being surrounded by all the artists and makers.
I love the variety of talent, skills and projects around me.
And the energy that, much like the ubiquitous sawdust, permeates the room.
I am SO pleased to now be smack dab in the center of it all.
