Wales and  Lockdown – Friday 23rd October 2020

In Lockdown don’t be down set up a home studio – art cupboard. Why don’t you convert a small space in your home into a studio. It can be a corner of a room, shed or garage. I have an art cupboard which is and old kitchen unit which has a drop down table, ideal for working and containing my mess. An old bureau would work really well as well.
