getting more equipment and supplies!

Postby meghanS » Sun Apr 13, 2008 8:37 pm

Tomorrow, I will send an email to Edinburgh Printmakers and see if they have any old/unused equipment or supplies they would be willing to donate to the Forest. Hopefully, I will have received a reply from them by Thursday.

If anyone else knows where we can get cheap or donated stuff, it would be a good idea to follow up on that!

yeah, I will try to go to the closing party and meet Gillian - sounds like she would try and pull strings for us if she can!

got an email from Gillian and she is going to see what she can find to give us - might just be old squeegees, but every little bit helps!

I went to the galley closing party to meet Gillian, but I din't know which one she was. I guess I could have asked around... oh well. If she doesn't respond by email about equipment soon, I might go to EP in person to see if they have stuff.

Sorry I havent been along for the past few Thurs meetings (i was at the first one). I hope to come along next week. the progress sounds great! well done!
I have a friend who works at eca who i'll have a word with about possible unwanted equipment etc. I'll also ask her for lists of suppliers etc for paints, iron on paper etc.
Hope to see you next Thurs.
