Here’s what Mairi has to say about her workspace:
My workspace is a corner of my living room (I often take over the whole room) and it tends to be pretty messy. I’m using found pieces of furniture and plan to paint them and get a large cube unit for keeping all of my bits and pieces better organised so that I, hopefully, contain it all in the corner.
This year, I’m finally putting real effort into designing and making a go of it through Etsy. I like getting to the photographing stage and listing the final piece ready for the world to find. Whenever someone buys my work, I feel so appreciative that someone, somewhere likes what I do and will enjoy it for years to come.
I’m currently celebrating 30 years since I started working with stained glass. I trained with a local artist then went on to work in a large glazing company. I have since graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery Design, I’ve worked as a graphic designer, a gift shop retail manager and an English teacher. I still teach English, here in Prague, and love being able to travel around this beautiful city taking photos of the stunning architecture.
Thank you for the opportunity to share my story and pics of my little workspace.
