I wanted to give you a quick glimpse into life at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice, where I’ve started my residency. I can’t believe this is my 3rd evening, and I “only” have another 13 to go! There is so much I want to do… I’ve conquered a number of practicalities: I know how to get to and from the Scuola from the student apartments, I’ve done my first load of washing, I’ve found a hardware store, a paper supplier and shops in which to buy everything from laundry liquid to salami, and – most importantly of all! – I’ve found the shop where you can buy GOOD red/white/Prosecco wine in refillable plastic bottles for the grand sum of EURO 2.30 per litre. Essential.
