It’s Monday September 4, and Davis Frazer, Pam and I have just kicked off Day 1 of our latest Printmaking in Paradise workshop on Skopelos Island in Greece. Here we all are on the verandah after breakfast doing our introductions. We have 12 participating artists, three staff and another 9 partners, friends and family make up the full party of 24 Aussies on the island. Day 1 has been spent looking at how to work from black (an inked up acetate plate) to white with cotton buds and various tools, in preparation for the first day of wood engraving tomorrow. Half of the group will work on different activities with each tutor for the remainder of our time here, giving us smaller numbers in each of the studios spaces.
