<p>“The KARST residency has been great, having the time and space to work on projects is amazing.</p> <p>“Having the freedom to work outside of the formal setting of a learning environment is challenging, but a very real indicator of how artists work and create alongside each other,” says Charlie.</p> <p>In February, Charlie will be moving into Maker Heights studios on The Rame Peninsula in Cornwall as a result of support from the college's alumni network – to begin a brand new residency set up by the college and artists at Maker Heights.</p> <p>“Moving on from Karst will be hard as I have made some great friends, and have very much enjoyed my time there.</p> <p>“But I’m very much looking forward to moving on to Maker Heights Studios and working in a new, fresh environment away from the city, and getting to know whole new set of creative people,” explains Charlie.<br /></p>
