053.. CAS HOLMES
I live in Maidstone in Kent referred to as the 'Garden of England' (at least the bits not subsumed by motorways and roads.)
I work all over the house, sitting in the garden to stitch in the warmer days and the garden space, where I do most of my wet work, was formerly my partner Derek's shed which he lovingly converted for me a few years back. In winter I cosy up more in the house. Everything in it from the tables to the cupboards are either found or created made from reclaimed materials, as is my work.
Can't live without...
The inspiration from and connection I have with the garden and local outside spaces.
A fabulous vintage Bernina 730 sewing machine.in found in a skip (dumpster)
Sketchbooks and tool to make my marks and reflect upon
My Favourite bench in the warm months and a cuppa.
Friendship and exchange with others and with Derek

Ahhhhh yes. Always nice to visualise people in their space and enjoying it. Thanks for sharing (and hadn't thought of my Bernina 730 as possibly vintage... I just thought she was a sturdy workhorse!)

I also work in places all over my house. But I'm not as tidy as you. Seems like I must work a little harder at organizational skills. You have a great workspace. Very inspirational. Thanks.

Thankyou. Small by many standards... Perfectly formed and recycled

Love that I am not the only one that uses their whole house and loved outside areas as their studio. Thank you for sharing.

Oh Cas! I love seeing and reading about your creative spaces, love that you work 'all over the house and in your garden' - one day I hope to visit and enjoy a cuppa with you in your favourite space.
