Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I don't think names matter if somone is nasty it's usually more about who they are than it is about us.
I'm on the shy side, I read often but rarely post unless I feel I can contribute something different than what's already been posted. This is my personality and no one here has ever made me feel bad about that. Honestly I feel like what's happened to you was an unfortunate turn of events and I'm glad you haven't allowed it to keep you away. I hope in time your wife too will see that and come back as well.
I've learned a lot from reading what others have shared so I'm greatful there are less shy people here who do share and that has nothing to do with how they identify them self.

I know somone who went to a craft show, saw a $25 mug and didn't want to pay it so he took lessons thinking he could make one cheaper. LOL he loved the process so much that ten years and many mugs later he is still throwing clay. I hope you take the class anyway you might find a new passion and in time learn to make your own bonsai pot :)

In Topic: Newbie Concerned With Home Studio Safety/dust

11 March 2016 - 05:48 PM

I have home studio in the basement as well

About the canvas, when I use mine for rolling I put it in a bucket with water, bring it up and outside for a scrubbing, leave it to dry then shake shake fold and bring it down stairs. I do the same with all my towels and cloth's and sponges. Pre washing your things before putting them in the washing machine is a good idea for your houses pipes.

I have canvas on my wedge table I sponge it before and after each use

Also, I damp sponge or spray my wheel, counter tops and wipe the floors before and clean thoroughly after each studio time. I didn't used to do the before wipe down but I noticed a film that had dried from previous use and worried about dust. It's kind of a pain but worth the extra time.

Nothing more to add to all the other great advice. Unless you want to talk kiln and glaze safety?
