Why I am bidding farewell to the Hands Occupied Studio space, and what this means for the rest of the year for Hands Occupied.
In early 2019, the Hands Occupied Studio opened as a dedicated workspace from which I can run my business, do design work, shoot photos and videos, and develop larger art pieces. (Visit the About page for more on Hands Occupied.)
12/1/21 In 2022, I'll be downsizing to a smaller space. In my already-small space social distancing wasn't possible, so Hands Occupied Studio will officially not be hosting Craft Nights or Crafternoons for the foreseeable future. We had so much fun, and the community is already missed!
