Looking for a teacher

Default Looking for some suggestions for my workspace!

I am currently living in an apartment which wont allow me to set up any sort of space where fire is involved, in the building, so I am thinking of converting a enclosed 5x8 trailer into a workshop. My only other options are to rent a space or to rent torch time in an existing studio.
I live in south Florida so if anyone can offer me some helpful advise or contacts I would be thankful. I am looking for:
  • A trailer
  • A space to rent
  • A studio with space to rent
  • suggestions on where to find any of the above
  • suggestions on how to convert a trailer into a mobile workshop
Thank you all.

You can maybe glean some ideas from reading my horse trailer turned studio thread here in the studio forum. Lots of pics too.

If you live in an apartment, where are you going to put/leave the trailer? Just something to consider.

I'd say find a place to rent time. That's what I did for quite a while & in the end it was more fun than working alone!
Good luck!

You might check with Pam Dugger or Barb Svetlick at http://www.riverofglassstudio.com/default.asp they have a studioin Ft Lauderdale I think, I am not sure if they rent space or not but it couldn't hurt to ask.

Is there any area with a lot of artists in your town? I rent a space that a share with a jeweler and the building is filled with artists so it's fun to be in.
