Default The smallest studio EVAH!!!

For all of you who are thinking you don't have the space for a studio I'm here to tell you anything is possible My space is a converted pantry. We just didn't need to store enough food to see us through the apocalypse!!

DH did all the destruction/construction. We wired up a dedicated 20amp outlet just for the kiln. I have NG running. We opted for a downdraft ventilation system vs a hood (which saved tons of space!!).

This is the view from the doorway. I've installed more wire racks on the wall to the left since this picture was taken (more storage for enamels). There is a small crawl space to the back left and I have shelf storage in there for items that just need a place to hang out. It's not very useful space so is truly storage. I thought about trying to open up that wall but not doable as we have stairs backing onto that wall on the other side.

It's tiny but packs a punch. I love it!!

You can't really see it but the space under the table to the right where the kiln sits is floor to table top of the divided fence rail and that's where all the glass is.

I'm so impressed! I think you still have to be super organized to work in that space, but it looks great. You guys did a terrific job, thanks for sharing!

That is a really cute studio. And I love how efficient the set-up is. If I could get everything in there for silver smithing also, it would be perfect!

Thats one of the neat things about lampworking - you might THINK you need a lot of space but really most everything needs to be within reach! LOVE your space

I love the studio organisation, but I love the collection of CG Rollers even more. If I want to buy one it costs me 11 x $ price = R500.00 for on roller|

Ingrid, I'm in the States and admiring that collection of bead rollers too!! Although I will say I've picked up a few over the years. I wish more folks made them or they weren't so expensive! Devardi has some inexpensive ones to start with, I still use the ones I bought from them.

Wow such a nice space! How many feet wide by how many feet long is it? I'm looking at moving my studio into a small space and I need to know a range. Knowing what your studio measures would help a lot. Thanks!
