Good news..I am heading over to China for 8 weeks in the summer.
I sent in an application to an International Residency programme in Jingdezhen South West of Shanghai. It's also called Porcelain City because the blue and white China originates from there.
It will be an exciting time. I hope to spend a few days exploring Shanghai before I get my feet under the desk in Jingdezhen.
I will keep a blog of my preparations for China and while I am there too
Further details on the International Residency programme can be found on this link
