WICHITA — Wallflower Studios isn’t a floral company, but you wouldn’t necessarily know that from its name or address — present or future.
Now, they’re expanding at a new site.
“Ironically enough, we’re moving to another flower building,” Aaron Patton says.
The Pattons are moving from their current 4,000-square-foot space to more than 11,000 square feet in the former Roots & Bloom building at 151 S. Laura.
“It’s massive,” Aaron Patton says.
Patton says he and his wife like the openness of the former Roots & Bloom space plus the extra rooms it has, which they can convert to studios, a gallery and a showroom.
There will be a 1,500-square-foot separate studio for other photographers to rent, which Patton says is more sizable than some other photography spaces for rent in the area.
“We’re just kind of hoping to offer something a little more versatile,” he says.
Their lease is up where they currently are.
“It’s been really great,” Patton says of the building. He adds, though, “We had been looking at having more of a showroom.”
