Re: Gum printers in UK (Re: Scott McMahon gum workshop, September

Hi Katharine,

Thanks for that. I've spoken to John who says he will help me out. Julian can't be found anywhere...I wonder...has he and Terry King ever been seen together...?

Is that true about Gum Rex, or was that tongue in cheek?

I don't know if either of these guys are doing workshops, but there's

they have contact information for the artist there.


That would be at least a couple of people to talk to. Good luck,
