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.
