I have 24 or so wooden table easels. Nothing fancy, but they work pretty well for us. In the past, I had a parent who bent really heavy wire, from the ceiling, and we hung them from the "hooks" when we were not using them. It worked well, and it got them out of the way. I am now in a new shiny art room, and wondering, are there other better, less "dangerous" ways of storing those easels when not in use? I thought perhaps running a PVC pipe through the exposed ceiling could be sturdier, but would they "spin"? Maybe run two pipes and hang the easel through the middle? Anyway, I'm open to whatever ideas you have-surely there's another teacher out there who has easels that need storing.
