Inside the studio : Georgia Bosson
For our very first inside the studio feature we are staying (extremely) close to home and having a look behind the scenes of Georgia Bosson Studio.
Before this gets too confusing lets clear a few things up - the voice you are reading is Georgia’s (hi!). This blog post is going to stay in the third person for consistency (and because I like to make my life difficult) but the point of Makers House is to showcase the process behind the product and for that we (I) think you probably need to meet Georgia (me) first. Phew that was complicated….
So, before we get to the fun stuff here’s a brief history of everything; Georgia set up Makers House out of frustration with the lack of exciting, affordable exhibiting opportunities during the London Design Festival. Having shown with Design Junction and Top Drawer Georgia was after something a bit more personal. There is nothing quite like a white trade show box to take all of the joy and life out of a product, so she was looking for a way to show products whilst also answering the eternal question ‘so do you actually know how to make this stuff?’ - It is amazing how often that gets asked.
And so to answer that question she set up an exhibition (there was probably an easier way but there you go) she pulled in a few talented friends and with the help of the wonderful South East Makers Club, Makers House was born. Now here we are almost three years later and it turns out exhibition design and curation is something Georgia loves to do alongside her own practice (more on that further down).
More of this story will leak into these blogs as the weeks go on but for now you are probably ready to see a few fun studio images so we will move on to the real reason for the blog….
So here I am interviewing myself… enjoy!
Share a photo of you at work and tell us about your favourite working days.
Tell us a bit about your design process, how do you get started and generate new ideas?
Show us your workspace, is it clean or messy?
Introduce us to your team - do you work with anyone else to help make your finished products? If it’s just you tell us about your hidden team (We’ve all got a team of unsung heros that we couldn’t work without!)
Your Makers House - show us a snapshot of your home (real or dream space) and tell us about your favourite thing you have bought from a fellow maker.
And finally show us your products - finished in all of their professionally photographed glory!
And that’s a wrap - I have to say it has been very weird interviewing myself but I hope you find it interesting to see a bit of the story behind the finished products that you see at the shows. If there is anything you think we have missed out or would like to know please comment below and we will make sure it is in the interview list for our next makers!
