About gennytheprintmaker

I trained and worked as a linguist until the creative streak finally took over, and I am still inspired by foreign language and culture. In April 2017 I went on a two-week Chinese tea sourcing odyssey with a local Dorset teahouse owner. In May 2019 I was in Shanghai, enthralled by the ceramics in the Shanghai Museum. My most recent prints are inspired by those experiences. I have over 25 years' experience in education, and I have really enjoyed providing the printmaking workshops (since 2014).

Thank you Ali! It made my day reading that wonderful feedback! I hope you are having a nice relaxing weekend after last weekend's printmaking extravaganza! I thought you achieved a really nice balance of relaxation with commitment to learning the techniques, and for a first go with collagraphy the outcomes were incredibly successful. Hope to see you back in the studio!! Many thanks for taking the time to write the review.
