trade redux

An amended draft email complete with newly updated logo:

Subject: Nine Trades of Dundee

Calling all call-centre workers and would-be artists!

Are you a secret artist? Do you draw doodles when you are on the phone? Now is the time to turn your doodles into fabulous screen-prints that will decorate the walls of the call-centre!

In collaboration with the Scottish Arts Council and Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design we are offering call-centre workers the chance to get some FREE classes at the DCA screen-printing workshop. This will only take about two hours of your time for about 4 weeks. By the end of it you will be a skilled printer with your very own portfolio that you can keep forever! The prints will be framed and displayed on the walls of the office, and when we are all finished there will be a grand exhibition opening with champagne and canapes and the like.

If you are interested in this opportunity to get some FREE art training and your very own FREE print then just send me an email stating what sort of time would be suitable for you. The project has already been receiving TV and newspaper coverage, so this could be your big chance!

Times are not yet decided for the screen printing classes, but we are thinking Thursdays at around tea time or early evening at the end of July. If another time might suit you better, drop me a line and let me know. This is just an email to introduce you to the Nine Trades idea, and all feedback is welcome. I look forward to hearing from you!

many thanks
Ben Robinson
