Maker's bio

Hello, I retired from teaching 7 years ago and started to develop my arty side. I worked in watercolour and acrylics attending numerous workshops to develop my art skills. Two / three years ago I stumbled on Craftcourses and booked a silk painting course and I loved it. Silk painting then became my preferred art form. I then discovered batik using hot wax. Some of my silk paintings I go on to embellish with stitching and appliqué. I am passionate about my art and now run workshops, exhibit my work and sell my work through artisan markets. Many of my works have been printed to make greetings cards.

LornaF reviewed: Batik - hot wax full day workshop

"Cracking day, I really enjoyed it and would do it again. Jane was great, a good teacher and very patient. Providing help, advice and a near constant flow of tea or coffee. I wouldn’t describe myself as arty but went home with 2 very presentable pieces of work."

Jane’s Celebration Services responded:

"Hi Lorna, I’m so glad you enjoyed your day. Thank you for the lovely review. Jane"

Victoria reviewed: Batik - hot wax full day workshop

"A lovely day spent in her kitchen being creative with Jane. Card making in the morning covered lots of batik techniques, with a larger picture created in the afternoon ready to be mounted after drying. Jane was clear, patient and generous with her time and hospitality as well as sharing very interesting conversation throughout the day. Thank you."
