Amid making tons and tons of stock I am also constantly worrying about size of stand, how people can fit in stand, and where products can go… so this is take 2 on the blog but actually it is about take 7 since end of January. So I’ve since receieved my big book of information from Country Living which includes all types of things I can add on for the week/moving in day… fancy a fork lift anyone? Luckily my work doesn’t weigh anything so they only bulky things will be display shelves and furniture.
Phil my lovely handyman, friend, technician came up with the idea of using a potting table for me to demonstrate on. It will be the right height for me to stand at and it has shelves underneath. The best part is that my mum owns one so we will be giving it a coat of paint and bringing it down to London. The shelves on the wall will be for busts/necks with necklaces on and for my felted bowls. The shelf at the top will hold my cushions. My friend Frank is helping me print off some A3 size photographs to make a storyline that goes along the top of the wall with theme “from sheep to brooch”
Now that I have my book of information I have also learned that I only have one wall as part of my shell. The sides are open and just have two columns with a wooden banner going around the top with my name on it. This morning my mum and I worked out that the stand space is the same size as the width of the conservatory so we planned things out that way and I am feeling a bit more relaxed about the display now.
