Jane Spink, UK based Artist and Printmaker
I was excited to sign up for the APA when it launched this year. My practice as an artist/ printmaker has evolved a lot over the years and I am always hungry to experiment with new materials and processes.
I was looking for a source of inspiration - something to inject into my practice which will take me into untried territory and well out of my comfort zone, but at the same time yield some exciting results...
I discovered the @alternativeprocesses Instagram account and became fascinated with the work that appeared on their feed - and so to enroll on the APA was a no-brainer for me!
The beauty of this online course is that it is self-paced, so there’s no stress - even if days, weeks or months go by and for some reason you’ve been unable to participate - you won’t miss anything. There’s also a good sharing community in the Discord online chat, which can be very helpful when you’re working alone.
So far I have started to explore Lumen printing and also to build my knowledge of cyanotype - but I’ve barely scratched the surface yet! Chiara will be adding modules to the course on an ongoing basis, so really it’s a never-ending learning experience - amazing value for money :)
