ABOUT THIS EPISODE
As creative people, we need a space to be creative and make things, and all the better if it’s a dedicated creative space and not the kitchen table. In this episode, we give you some unconventional space ideas to help you carve out ideas to help create your own dedicated space.

SHOW QUOTES

  • My studio has a personality of its own. It can be a monstrous clutter from one end to the other or, at times, the very model of simplicity.  – Harley Brown

You must have a room or a certain hour of the day or so, where you do not know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody or what they owe you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. – Joseph Campbell
