Linda Lewin

Linda Lewin is a professional jeweller and sculptor who trained at Sheffield College of Art. Over the past thirty years she has taught short courses in her own studio and technical classes for colleges. Her drawing practice, metalworking skills and her first hand experience of working with horses are all brought together in her equestrian sculptures.

Describe your approach to teaching.
I try to evaluate the students problems and teach accordingly. Preparation and mastering techniques take time but always pay dividends. Self confidence and problem solving skills are vital.

What inspires your own work?
Everything I make is different so I’m always excited to get to the end to see what it is and whether I have been successful. In this work I could say my lovely horse is my model and my muse.
