National and international award winning sculptor and painter. I studied Fine Art at UCLAN as a mature student and have never looked back! I eventually got around to following my dreams in my thirties and have been creating and teaching ever since. I now run workshops from my home in Trawden, a beautiful village on the edge of Lancashire and have over twenty years of experience teaching adults and children from all around the world. My art practice is extremely fluid as I flit from one thing to another as my mind wanders and takes flight. I create animal characters with very human leanings and humans with animalistic leanings, I paint and I draw and I love to go on an adventure or three. I have two grown up children that make me proud and a partner who does all the filming and editing for the digital workshops, writes children's books and plays drums in a band. I play guitar and sing loudly and love to walk in the hills where I dream up my creations.

Good fun day- very clear instructions and made the day really enjoyable- cant wait to take my hare home

Sophie Garforth Jan 2024


Really great class. The teacher was fantastic, neither me or my mum had any previous experience and can’t believe the quality of what we made!

Jennifer McNish Jan 2024


What a fantastic day. We arrived at the venue and were warmly met by our hosts. When the other people arrived we moved into a well equipped room all laid out with all the tools and materials that we would need for the day. We were also given an apron, which was a great touch. Lynda gave great, clear, detailed instructions for each section of our construction and we all worked together to complete our task. It was amazing by the end of the session to see the character of our hares, who were constructed the same, but all looked slightly different. Lynda and her partner were positive, cheerful, encouraging and supportive at every step. My husband and I loved this session and will look to do something similar again.

The teacher Linda was lovely. She gave clear instructions ,demonstrated each stage and offered help and encouragement. The venue was pleasant and easily accessible with good facilities. A day well spent. I can’t wait to see the finished product once it has been fired.

Teacher's response

Thank you Heather for the lovely review. It was a fantastic group. As I mentioned at the venue we will be updating our workshop listings on Classbento over the next few days so keep an eye out for anything that takes your fancy. Glad you enjoyed it and look forward to seeing you again.

I found that it was a good introduction to using a different type of watercolour.

Teacher's response

Thank you Anita for the review. I'm glad you found it interesting as Brusho is a medium that people aren't really aware of, which is a shame, as it can be used to create wonderful art. Thanks again for the review.

Absolutely recommend this workshop. Thoroughly enjoyed the day - fun and relaxing. Well taught by the extremely talented Linda
Not done any clay sculpture since I was 12 years old - found a new outlet and hopefully attending more sessions next year
Thanks Linda for an amazing day - and thanks Owen for looking after us so well.

Clay Sculpture Workshop: Green Man / Woman review by Victoria Dollard - Blackburn

Teacher's response

Thanks for the review. We're glad you enjoyed it and we hope to see you again :)

Our knowledgeable and friendly workshop tutor took us through this Green Man Ceramic workshop a step at a time until the whole class ended up with a lovely, fun Green Man. We now wait for our works of art to be fired before collecting them, can’t wait. This class is RECOMMENDED!
