After much internal thinking and debating I'm jumping in with my idea to take on a local shop as a pop-up gallery and workshop space available to hire to interested local community artists, designers and makers.
I've built a new website and am giving my networking skills to the test. Whether or not I get enough interest to get it off the ground...we shall see. But already I have had offers of help, of cups of tea, of garden tour swapsies. So in my mind I've already achieved a broadening of my artist community. Something will come of it. Something always does.
