I have been practicing gilding for over 10 years. However, most of my work was elsewhere, on site, as I could only do a little bit from home. From the moment I rented a studio at Making Space, my workload increased significantly. I am now able to entertain clients at a venue secure in the knowledge that I have a professional storefront. The help and guidance I’ve received from the management and other artists, has given a tremendous boost to my confidence and understanding of arts in the workplace. Not only am I more involved with the community, but I have a personal area where I can safely leave my work in situ until the next day without worries about jammy fingers being spread all over it! As a result, I have had my professional life boosted in every possible area. To me, it’s not just a studio to practice my raft, it is being part of a centre of excellence with other passionate individuals and their unique skills that has made such a huge difference in my life.
Richard Walker, Current Tenant
“The studio’s at Making Space are modern, bright and airy, I could instantly see myself working there! Having my studio at Making Space has made a huge difference to my practice; my business sales increased and I’ve been taken more seriously as a professional practitioner as well as a workshop leader. The dedicated space has enabled me to experiment and try out new ways of working that I was restricted in doing so before; this has improved the quality of my work significantly. Since I began my studio lease I have felt much more independent, confident and happy and it has given me the boost to push myself further.”
