We built our business working from home. We love that we can start exporting a project right before bed and wake up to find it ready to upload to Vimeo. I love sitting at my desk and watching the neighbors play on James Street. But alas, Pax arrives in 2 months and Philip’s editing studio wasn’t quite what I had in mind for nursery decor. To make room in our tiny home for our growing family we decided to find a shared studio space in Durham. Lucky for us, not only did we find an awesome space in a renovated Durham warehouse, but a very cool studio-mate who was gracious enough to share her work space with us! You absolutely must check out Rebekah Miel of Quick Brown Fox Studio! She is one crazy-talented Durhamite!
We’re loving Golden Belt. Our studio is in the Artists Studios (building 3 on the campus) and as you can see from our photos, drenched with natural light and quaint brick walls. We share the building with painters, graphic designers, letterpress artists, jewelers and many other Durham creatives. This is a true working-artist space. On any given day, most artists are hard at work with their studio doors open, ready to welcome visitors and discuss their latest inspiration.
This Friday Philip and I will be in our studio to celebrate our first Third Friday. If you haven’t been before, it’s a worthy way to spend your Friday night: touring the artist studios, visiting Labour Love Gallery, The Scrap Exchange, Liberty Arts and enjoying local music, food trucks (Pie Pushers will be here!) and of course, Full Steam beer! Please join us! We are in Studio 3-143.
