Your inky news December

What a fabulous year we have had! As the year draws to a close and TPG takes its annual December & January leave I want to extend a huge thank you to each and every member of The Printing Girls for their hard work this year. The community of passionate inky women has really made 2022 so memorable.

Looking back on the year I am amazed at what we have all accomplished. Whether is was life-changing workshops, community focused small group meetings, or career bolstering exhibitions, the members were tireless in their commitment to themselves, each other and the landscape of print in South Africa. Congrats to each of you.

To our loyal TPG friends, I am so grateful for your support throughout 2022. Thank you for showing up in our emails, our exhibitions and our bank accounts! Behind each and every purchase of art I can promise you was a TPG doing a happy dance in her studio! 

I wish you all a wonderful festive season with your loved ones and a well deserved rest. Come back ready for an extraordinary 2023!

Keep printing!
