Re: workspace

It is just a normal clothes drying rack that I bought :) You can dry a lot of paper in a small space.

Hi Laura,

Oh, good. I'm so glad to hear it. ;) What a great space, though. And I love the way you dry your paper. Is that some special set-up, just for drying paper, or did you rig that up yourself?

Oh, no way! This is the workshop of the Icelandic Printmaking Association. At the moment there are about 70 members. However, when I go over to work in the evenings, I'm often the only one there!

Btw, if I didn't have to share, it would be as messy as Keith's place :) Maybe I could upload a shot of my home to prove it!

I forgot to add that after just now looking at Laura's workspace, I'm back to feeling bad again. Is this space all for you, Laura, or do you normally have to share? I'm so used to getting by in amazingly cramped quarters, that I don't know what I'd do if I had a place to work that's as spacious as that-- very impressive.

Just for fun, I snapped some phone pics of the graphic studio where I work.
I thought it might be interesting to share. I'd also be interested to see
others' workspaces.


Top, left to right:
1. My freshly sized paper...don't you just want to grab a sheet and print on
it? :)
2. The ventilated "toxic fumes" room. Great for applying sizing.
3. The dark room.
4. Another view of the dark room.

1. The exposure unit I use.
2. Half of the main room.
3. A litho press
4. The other half of the main room. There we actually people there last
night...usually I have the whole place to myself!

There is also a gallery in the building. They sometimes invite guest
artists. There is a nice website, but I just noticed now there is not a word
of English on it! I think I should try to do something about that.

Best Regards,
