Printsy!

Printsy is a new Etsy street team to promote the work of all the wonderful printmakers on Etsy!

The team has a new blog which will feature lots of interesting interviews, articles about printmaking and much more. There is also a Flickr group, and a wonderful treasury curated by Sonia aka She Rides the Lion made it onto the front page of Etsy.

Hooray!

We are really excited to be a part of it and there are lots of very talented printmakers involved.

There hasn't been much time for printmaking at Spoonergregory Acres this week - we have both been busy with our day jobs. For me that meant taking a group of students from the Landscape History course at the University of East Anglia around the park at Wimpole Hall - the sun shone, lambs frolicked, and everyone (apart from me) saw Joanna Lumley on the home farm!

Here we are at Wimpole talking about the location of one of its many avenues. This is the final week of the university term so from next week I'll have plenty of time for printmaking (and my thesis, naturally).

Printsy sounds like a really interesting idea, looking forward to seeing how it develops. I'm just finding my feet on Etsy - is it possible to join the group?

Wimpole is one of our favourite places to walk - especially the walnut avenue in October (but we rarely get there before others have eaten all the nuts!). Do you know the amazing Black Walnut tree right at the top of the park?
