It's a big deal to take something you've been working on with love out of the shed and into the bright lights of a gallery space, and even trickier inviting people to watch the creative process.
"It's time-consuming work but it's interesting to watch the processes," Ms Grose said.
"It's wonderful to have the space - just the light in here is wonderful."
Mr Mitchell said it was good to be somewhere central to show off his craft.
"It's nice for people to know who's making it, and where it's come from," he said.
"People can come in and have a chat and watch."
Both artists are aiming to run workshops throughout the year - keep an ey on the Lost Ones Maker's Studio page for more information.
There's also art on the walls from Katie Chancellor, who has been part of the Ballarat Evolve program - she's using studio space in the Bridge Mall.
"There's such a new energy in Ballarat for makers and creatives in the area, it's awesome to be part of it," she said.
"It's a huge growth area, with a lot of support and encouragement for it, and there's a good chance to meet other artists as well and be part of a great community growing."
The official launch at the gallery is Saturday from 2pm.
