Janine Flew has a Diploma of Fine Arts (Ceramics) from Northern Beaches Institute of TAFE. A practicising ceramicist, she finds joy in imparting her skills and knowledge to curious students who love to create with clay.
She is fascinated by the versatility of clay and enjoys exploring its many characteristics, idiosyncracies and technical challenges. Her current interests lie mainly in wheel forming, using coloured clays, experimenting with glaze-on-glaze effects and creating different textures, such as carving and stamping clay. When she is not messing about with clay, she works in museum publishing and continues a 40-year addiction to textile crafts.
