A bit about Jan:

Jan has over 20 years of teaching experience at the Grimsby Art College, North Lindsey College in Scunthorpe and Community Learning in Cleethorpes also with several years as a Creative Arts  Curriculum manager. Finding it a joy and a pleasure to facilitate in the creative journey of so many learners over the years, Jan continues to deliver exciting and interesting textile workshops here at The Steel Rooms and at the Discovery Centre in Cleethorpes as well as delivering talks,  workshops and summer schools for Embroiderer’s Guilds around the Country.

Jan is also a textile artist in her own right,  exhibiting her work with great success across the years and most recently at The Discovery Centre in Cleethorpes. Working in constructed textiles, the motivation behind Jans work is to promote hand embroidery, never really feeling satisfied unless the surface is fully stitched. Although her work also involves machine embroidery, applique, and mixed media she feels working in textiles gives her flexibility; that she can create painterly effects with the added bonus of a tactile three-dimensional quality.

Jan has been awarded the ‘Winner of the Beryl Dean National Teaching Award 2015’ and ‘2014/15  Winner of the City & Guilds Gold Medal of Excellence for teaching Creative Textiles’, highly esteemed accolades which are testament to Jans work and teaching with judges comments that “Jan  generously and tirelessly inspires and enhances the learning experience”. With Jans enthusiam to teach, learn new skills and share ideas we’re sure there’s plenty to learn and enjoy in her workshops.

About this Workshop:

We all have the capacity to be creative. If you are interested in ideas to help you develop a daily creative habit  this course is for you. It will help you to release  your creative side, to experiment  and be more playful  using materials such as inks, pens crayons  to discover  new marks and textures and ways of using and seeing the ordinary things around you as inspiration to express who you are.

Switching  on your creative side helps you to become more mindful and self-aware. It keeps you in the moment and treasuring the important things in life, the small family moments and milestones. This has been proven to have significant benefits  for health and wellbeing.

This session will be different to Part 1, so ideal for those wanting a second filling of Clare’s Journaling workshop, nor do you have to have done the first part to come along to this one … 

Reportage Sketching – creating  great sketchbook and journalling memories. The focus is on the everyday, the hustle and bustle we see all the time but  don’t register. There are stories and images everywhere if we look for inspiration. The course shares ideas and exercises to capture and collect them. The aim to show that art is for everyone  regardless of skill and to help you discover  new ideas, techniques and artists.

Clare will share her journals and ideas for making your own with you. You absolutely don’t have to be able to draw to do this course just have an open mind to join in and share.
