In 2008 the old church hall in Dals Rostock was about to be demolished as it was no longer in use. The plan was to use the space for parking. By a thread I was able to save it and after a couple of years to buy it from the church. Now I have converted it into a multi-functional space consisting of, studio, shop, sufficient space to run my courses, a library and my living accommodation. In the library I have my office and book collection consisting mainly of botanical, natural and cultural history, painting, calligraphy and many different craft techniques.
