When I signed up to teach workshops at the Kokomai Creative Festival I also signed up to have an open studio. Basically I’ll just be making things in my studio but people can visit me. See the schedule for the Open Studio Trail.
A couple of years ago Helen and I went to the Whanganui Open Studios weekend and the ones I liked best were the people who let you buy their stuff. So in that spirit I’ve set up a little corner of my studio as a shop. It’s not finished yet but I thought you’d like some photos. At my shop you can get everything you can buy online and quite a few things you can’t.
It’s quite handy too because when I’ve got orders to fill now I just go shopping at my shop. For visitors I’m working on EFTPOS too, which is exciting.
Once it’s finished I’ll also put details on my Emma Makes website about how to visit – in case you can’t make the October festival dates.
