Inside the Creative Workroom: Lisa Classon

Hello everyone!

It’s Hannah writing to you today. Do you know my sister, Lisa? Spinning, dyeing and felting extraordinaire and instructor of fantastic classes like the bucket bag, indigo dyeing and the window scarf (to name a few)! She’s been working on getting her workroom clean and organized for months (it’s amazing how long that process can take, isn’t it?) and she is so excited now that it is finally completed. We’re always interested to see where our customers, students and inspirations create their pieces, and so today, let’s take a little tour into Lisa’s creative workroom.

“The forthysia is so beautiful, I had to bring some inside!” said Lisa. Ok, this isn’t actually her workroom, it’s her living room, so picture yourself glancing at this before we descend downstairs to her actual workroom. (Notice the nuno felted runner? Made by Emma years ago, and re-dyed by Lisa just last month to breathe some new life into it!)

Lisa has been creating in one form or another for decades, and via that creating, she’s been collecting beautiful little treasures along the way. “It’s so nice to have all my fun stuff sorted, and on display!”, she tells me. Look at all those glass jars. LOVE those. Those little green things on top of her bookshelf? They’re vintage lamps with shades made from plates of metal from the production of scissors!

The mix of mid-century furniture and details in this room (and her whole home, really) is so great. I love it all.

“One of the nicest things about finally having my workroom back”, Lisa tells me, “is having my dye station, felting station and sewing stations all separate from one another. Now I’m not frantically searching through dyeing supplies to find silk for felting, or vice versa!”

Her awesome work table folds down so she can have a large, or small, work space depending on her project. Under her work table are baskets, and bins full of a myriad of gorgeous things; silk, cotton, linen, wool, roving, fibers, and yarn, among others. See that window on the left? That’s actually a sliding glass door, and just outside, on the patio, is her camp stove set up for dyeing! Just a short walk, that’s good planning, Lisa.

Our Great Aunt Charlotte’s vintage bird cards, antique sewing supplies, ribbons and more are all sorted and kept, lovingly, on display.

Do you have a workroom? Do you create in the kitchen, or the living room, or on the patio? Do you have a studio outside of your home? We’d love to know where your creative processes happen and what you love about that space (or perhaps what you don’t love so much). Please comment below and let us know!
