Our new studio location…191 Lyman Street
Our new studio is housed in what was once a factory for manufacture of leather belts used in machinery. It was housed in front of a tannery, now moved. The complex was
built in 1902. Later it housed two different textile operations, and then was purchased for family run candle-making operation; it was commonly called the Tannery Building. And was listed in Cabins & Castles, a survey of historic buildings in Buncombe County, now out of print.
The Candle Station was begun by two sisters and their family; they later purchased the building and began to rent it to a diverse assortment of small businesses and artists. When they ceased operation, it was renamed Riverview Station.
My new studio is located in the back, on the second floor and we have two wonderful round windows providing north light. While the address is 191 Lyman St. and you can park and enter from the fourth door from the right, head up the stairs and follow signs to JMK Studio 236. Take the stairs up and then go right, then left. We’re at the end of the hallway.
You can also take OLD LYMAN at the north end of the building, going around Mt. Glassworks to the right. This lot has limited parking during the week and semi trucks making deliveries. You can proceed to the back and there is another access. Please don’t block loading docks or designated parking areas. Look for the stairs and windows. We are in the first studio on the right at the top of the stairs. We sometimes leave to go painting at the park.
