An Elegant Solution


In my little studio space is at a premium. I have just about everything on wheels so I can move them about. But having things on wheels didn’t save space when it came to drying prints. I would either have the prints covering every available horizontal surface or hanging from a clothes line I had stretched inside the studio. Neither was a very elegant solution. Then I visited the studio belonging to a member of our local printmaking group, and I stole her idea.

I went to Home Depot and bought the materials for making window screens from scratch and made a number of screens sized to fit an empty cabinet. I had never made or repaired a window screen before, so I wasn’t sure I would be able to do it. Fortunately the only tools required were a hacksaw and a spline tool that I bought with the screening material. And while the screens are not all prefect, they are more than good enough for my needs. Now my prints they are out of the way, and I can work on other projects while they are drying.
