Details: Looking for individuals who are presently or aspiring artisans/crafts people. Specifically, people who do not have a suitable place (or any place at all),in which to bring your creations to life. I've realized in order for me to pursue my interests in woodworking I need to find a suitable studio
and pool resources with others to make it as affordable as possible. Perhaps with enough people this could work...and if it did it may become a much talked about place for future clients. It doesn't matter what skill level a person is, nor what craft they are involved in, what does matter is seriousness and committment to the cause. This could be a shot in the dark,
but I like what I do enough to explore this avenue. There are many successful cooperatives around the world. Its worth trying I think.
Building space rental and insurance will most liklely be the largest hurdles of all. Equipment, tools, and materials can grow as time goes on.
I am sure that certain crafts would compliment each other as well, opening up the exciting prospects of collaborations.
let me know you thoughts.
