Initially, in 1976, the focus of teaching at Helsinki Adult Education Institute in Helsinki was silk-screen printing techniques and their many applications. Following several journeys to China in the l980s, Chinese brush-painting became an important study and Alison later gave courses on the basic technique at the Swedish-speaking Adult Education Institute (Arbis) in Helsinki and also in Hanko.
