On Monday night, my Brickworks studio, which I’d spent lots of time and money renovating into what I thought was the perfect craft space, was burgled. Only my computer was taken, but, in trying to find something to steal, the thieves jemmied open all the interal doors, smashing the door frames and ruining the locks.
At first I thought ‘nothing that can’t be replaced’ but sometime later the psychological effects of someone breaking into my space and rifling through my thing
really got to me.
Despite assurances that this hasn’t happened before, I no longer feel comfortable and am considering moving the whole outfit back to my home studio.
