Lynne Stein

Lynne is a tutor with 25 years' experience of conducting workshops and projects in schools, further and adult education, and within museums and galleries.

She is a member of The Textile Society and the International Feltmakers Association, and is author of Rag Rug Creations, published by Bloomsbury.

My approach to teaching is to explore the creative potential of the particular medium and materials with students, by providing demonstrations, and initially encouraging much individual experimental sampling.

My work is concerned with autobiographical themes and metaphors, recycling, mark- making, and the colour, pattern and textural possibilities within a craft which has a history of necessity rather than decoration.
