Yesterday we drove to the small town of Shaftesbury in Dorset, famous for the ‘Hovis Bread’ advert on Gold hill.
Not only did we see the Gold hill, which is as steep as it looks in the photos, but we met a ‘golden’ guy called John Roland, owner of Salt of the Earth, who are printers for artists and photographers.
We met with John to discuss printing some of our fine art images that we are selling. John explained in great detail the different types of paper and how the printing process worked and what material would be best for us.
We stayed for an hour as we chatted away and he told us about his experiences from owning a gallery to promoting yourself as an artist. The advice was golden and we came away with so many ideas and tips.
John is a wonderful man and a real gold treasure.
