First class maker of shoes, boots, ceramics, sculpture, art, raw food, baskets, books, woollies, other stuff... and round things.
Plenty of handmade items for sale. My latest major pursuit is to bring people a polite way to go close to bare footed with made-to-measure, soft sole deer skin moccasin shoes and boots.
About Jann French:
My degree is in ceramics. I have worked as a film editor, potter, sculptor, carpenter, teacher, decorator, cleaner, SCUBA instructor, events organiser, arts administrator, community art centre manager and book-keeper. I volunteer on committees, at co-ops, music festivals and organic farms. Born in England, now an Australian citizen. I've also lived in South Africa and studied in Israel.
I trained in art from my earliest school days. I can paint and draw but prefer working in 3-dimensions. Traditional trades and crafts really blow my hair back. I swoon at things well-made and hand-made because I think they radiate more charm, heart, strength, usefulness, quality, depth, beauty, individuality etc. And essentially, I find handmade things much more enjoyable and comfortable to live with.
Workshops and private lessons:
I am available for private teaching, tutoring or coaching in pottery, sculpture, art, kiln firing, basket weaving, bookbinding and knitting. $55 per hour.
I teach group workshops on a variety of art and craft skills throughout the year.
My services, workshops and lectures are available for hire by companies, schools and organisations as well as individuals.
