I have now joined the Fife Dunfermline Printmaking Workshop as a member and I think this is probably one of the best things (artistically speaking) that I’ve done this year. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful studio available to the public.
I’m now doing an etching course with the fabulously talented Sandra Baxter who has totally won me over with her skill and enthusiasm. I’m not entirely sure if I will ever be able to remember any of the many exciting techniques she has showed us, let alone re-create them, but better to fail gloriously than never to try, right? There are so many thing you can do as a printmaker that I am sure you could never get bored with it. It will probably take me a few years to even remotely begin to know what I am doing though…! (See below for my very first tiny etching.)
