Over the summer, I've been trying out some new workshops in my new studio. It's been a great way to earn about what works with the workshops themselves but it's also led me to make some changes to the plans for the studio they'll take place in.

When we put these workbenches in, I'd planned to buy some second hand stools for workshop participants to sit on. However, after all the hard work that has gone in to getting the benches right, I decided that it would only be right to make sure the seating was just right too. When cutting out metal with a piercing saw, it makes things a lot easier if you can keep the saw frame vertical, so it made sense to get adustable height seats so that those using them can set the height that suits them and saw more comfortably. My nieces helped me chose and assemble them and we chose seats with back rests too. I'm looking forward to them geting lots of use.

The feedback on the workshops has been really useful too and I'm already starting to put together a plan for the autumn programme.
