MAKING SPACES

My most recent project has been setting up Raven Studios in Shrewsbury, which I co-founded with Jancis Vaughan in early 2019 under MakeSpace Arts & Wellbeing CIC. Making spaces for creativity and wellbeing is an increasing part of my work, and I welcome opportunities to make more of them!

Our studio creatives include an illustrator, a musician, printmakers, painters, a poet and an eco-architect. In just four months we are generating enough income to offer creative opportunities for young people, consider arts award training, build a proper website with online booking for workshops and keep the coffee jar topped up. We transformed this space from an unloved office block into a creative and peaceful space which enlivens the local area

Here are some photos of the studios…
