Printmakers visiting Printmakers



I enjoyed reading this article from the worldprintmakers website about Canadian printmaker, Audrey Feltham and her husband, Jim visiting Maureen Booth in Spain. There are brief diary excerpts from Audrey about her experience travelling to the remote town where worldprintmakers is located. Some of them are very funny. She also mentions a technique Maureen taught her of some prints that she had done using a collograph technique that employs a metal-based epoxy glue.
I didn't know anything about Maureen, but now I am fascinated with her life and what she is doing. It's so amazing that these kind of people exist in this world.

How interesting! I met Audrey some years ago when she visited our printmaking studio and showed us her work. She is a very good artist and very articulate and happy to share her knowledge.

Yes, I found the article interesting. I wish is was a bit longer though. The whole idea of visiting each others' printshops is quite appealing. It reminds me of a servas program except for printmakers. I can't wait until I have my own printshop where I can invite people from all over the world to visit and trade secrets!!!
