Studio Streaming

Studio Streaming

I’ve always loved visiting other artist’s studios while they’re working. I don’t really care what the medium is, or what they’re working on, I just love watching them work. One day, I’d love to have a store with studio spaces for artists. There just aren’t many nearby that are comfy and inviting for visitors.

I love having people over to my home studio. I love explaining my tools and showing people how I do my work. So, I’ve been toying with the idea of streaming some studio time.

I’d pretty much just be doing what I always do, bouncing from project to project, listening to my Pandora stations, but I’d also be able to chat with people about whatever they’re seeing. We could share stories, swap tool tips,  laugh at my clumsiness, whatever the day brings.

My gorgeous mortar and pestle! I love how it matches my marble top work bench.

It would also give me incentive to clean my space more often, haha!

So, if I streamed it, would you come?

  1. I would love to see your process if you live streamed! Like you I’m always curious about what other artists are doing and live to see new techniques as well. Facebook just released their live stream ability and unlike parascope it will stay on your wall for followers to come back to, watch and comment.It’s pretty slick! Pretty sure it’s also able to be embedded to blogs as well 🙂
    Loving the pedestal design!

    • I was actually debating on using Periscope! That’s for pointing that out, I hadn’t really considered Facebook; I was down to Periscope or Google Hangouts.
      I will definitely invite you to my first stream when I figure out logistics! Also, I have the pendant completely done now, pics are on Instagram @melissadawnjewelry! I’ll be posting it here in a couple days.

      Do you stream?
