Can I Make a Witch Craft Room? Part Two
Oh boy, saplings. You may know that I’ve been working on a space for my magic craft and my non-magic crafting. But, sometimes synchronicity shows up when you least expect it. I was stuck on the last major furniture pieces for this room when I bought and downloaded Molly Roberts’s Art Witch e-book. That was the kick in the pants I finally needed to get things going.
I still haven’t moved in all of my supplies, but here’s a look at my craft room—which I’ve taken to calling The Lab or The Artificery Lab.
So far, I’ve noticed two major things both artists and witches need in rooms like this: storage, and flat surfaces. No matter how much some of us might want to remain minimalistic, the appeal of beautiful things can often be too much to ignore. So there’s a huge need for storage. I went with a combination of cabinets and bookshelves. Most of my supplies are organized by use. All paint supplies live together, and all of the papercrafting tools live together in one drawer. The paint brushes were too tall to fit in cups, bristles up, in the cabinets. So, I haven’t quite worked out a system for all of my brushes, but I am more than open to hear any of your ideas.
After reading Molly Roberts’s book, I feel more comfortable housing the sketchbooks along with some of my witchbooks. Hopefully I’ll figure out a system to keep them all visually different from each other.
Now, all that’s left is to figure out where to source a stool or chair that is tall enough for my sewing setup, and The Laboratory will be ready for action. What do your workspaces look like? I’d love to hear about the spaces you’ve set aside for your crafting, or even see some photos.
