Any good ideas out there for a garage workshop divider?

I'm putting together my woodworking (hobby) shop in my 2 car garage. I'll be taking up one bay for equipment, with the other for the car in the winter months. As it's a hobby, the shop won't be in use all the time, maybe once a week if I'm lucky.

Since this forum is full of great ideas, can anyone recommend a way to keep the dust down in the garage?

I have a dust collector, but no air filter.

What about hanging a tarp on a sliding curtain track along the ceiling to section off the wood working equipment when needed, or something similar? How would you build it (cheaply)?

Any other ideas?

You need a real wall to isolate the wood butchering.
Anything short of that... won't do.

Ideally... the access between the the two areas will only be from outside too.
