Lynn Fisher has practiced as a ceramic artist/art educator for over 40 years.
She graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town and taught graduate and undergraduate ceramics in South Africa, London, England and Canada.
Lynn was a teacher and Head of the Department at the Koffler Centre of the Arts for 18 years. Concurrently, she taught at the Gardiner Museum, the ROM, and in numerous schools. Lynn has lived a life on several continents and travelled extensively throughout Europe, Turkey, India, and Mexico, studying ceramic methods and cross cultural design. She spent 12 years on the island of Rhodes, Greece, where she operated her own studio, shop, and gallery. It is this collective and extensive knowledge that she shares with students.
Lynn teaches students who wish to create, explore the medium of clay, and learn its processes. She aims to demystify the process and inspire creativity believing that everyone has the ability to create and that her workshops are opportunities for self-exploration and growth. Lynn also uses clay as a therapy for adults and children experiencing and recovering from sexual, physical, psychological, and substance abuse and as a tool for ESL students, for building corporate culture, and for celebrations. Lynn has exhibited her work nationally and internationally and continues to create and explore ceramics in her own studio. In recognition of her contribution to education through visual arts, Lynn was awarded the South African Woman for Woman award in 2000, in Canada.
Lynn currently teaches Earthenware, Stoneware, and Raku classes at the Gardiner Museum.
