So to further my experiments with cassette tape loops I have tried something today. I have loaded one of my home made cassette loops onto my tascam 8 track and recorded different notes on different tracks, then “performed” those notes using the faders on the 8 track. Essentially like an 8 note Mellotron!

Last weekend I did lots of jobs in the lab to tidy up and get organised - peg board + packing station, refurbished an old table top to use as a workbench and also repurposed this old wooden trolley into a plant stand. It's great having lots of plants in one place. So much easier for watering and misting and I can also wheel it in front of the doors to give them a sun bath. Perfect! ☀️🌿 thegardenlaboratory

Time well spent yesterday up-cycling this metal cabinet for the garden lab. Every day is earth day here at E+A HQ. Always thinking about the environment. Never have used plastic in packaging, always try to reuse cardboard shipping boxes wherever possible (it may not look as pretty as new but it ends up in the recycling bin eventually). Never brand shipping boxes either so other people can reuse them easily. E+A beakers are super reusable and if you saw my post a few days ago you will know that candle refills are available for them and if you'd like to see more ideas on how to reuse your E+A Candle Beaker, there's a link in my bio to an amazing video made by the brilliantly talented hannahgabriellemore 👆🏻In 'About' E+A Candle Beaker .

Tidier and sunnier times in the garden lab. Still haven't plumbed in the sink (the space in the far right corner) mainly because winter came and came again and it snowed and kept on snowing then raining. We need to find the outside water pipe and dig down so we can connect up. Waiting for warmer weekends to do that and we are also going to lay crazy paving outside with sandstone that we dug up last year when digging the electrical cable channels. Love a bit of crazy paving essenceandalchemy candlemaker inthestudio thegardenlaboratory

Things are starting to take shape in the garden lab. As I'm working around the space I'm finding what works best. All the furniture and shelving I had already, the only new thing was the worktop so very pleased with the reuse, up-cycling and reclaimed wood used for the fit out. Even managed to squeeze in my E+A candle station from The Herbology Room. It's a handy postal packing station cabinlife cabinlove tinshed thegardenlaboratory

Paid a visit to Hoyland Dismantling this morning to pick up some TG&V boards for the ceiling in thegardenlaboratory, they supply new timber as well as reclaimed and their prices are very good. Every time I visit I am in awe of this beast of a resaw which they use to repurpose beams into boards stenner resaw bandsaw reclamation timber

Growth This weekend is all about digging a trench from the house to the garden lab for the electricity and internet cables ( bearandfoxuk has already started 🐻💪🏻). Once we get the electric in, we can start on the plumbing and then the fun inside part. Thanks to Dan for all his hard work and also believing in me so much that we're actually doing this! buildingaworkshopfromascratchisnteasy thegardenlaboratory Also starting a new hashtag plantsonplaster

The E+A Garden Laboratory -While I'm in London, this is happening back home in Sheffield. A whole 7m x 4m! It's been built the same way as modern day timber frame house, with insulation and protective membrane. The metal roof is going on today and then the windows, doors and external metal cladding will follow in the next few weeks. This is the view from the house. Thanks bearandfoxuk and Jack the Border Collie for overseeing while I'm away thegardenlaboratory
