I made the decision awhile ago that during my studio residency at Signal Arts Centre this year I would concentrate on printmaking and bookbinding. I am happy with my painting set-up in my home studio now, but had to pull my pasta-press from storage under the studio couch! I gathered my materials at the top of the stairs leading to my studio in order to start For my progress information about last year's residency, look here, here, here, here, and here!
The first job for me was to do a good sweep of the place! I was asked if I wanted any of the large tables removed (there was one that wasn't there last year), but since I was planning on working differently than I did last year, I decided to wait till I moved things around before making decisions to remove furniture.
In the end I decided to keep all the furniture that was in the studio, I just had to move things around a bit.
I covered all the surfaces with kraft paper so I would have a fresh clean surface to start work on. I moved specific tables to specific spots to form my work stations for drawing, printing, bookbinding, paper cutting
and of course a place to set my tea cup.
