Free yourself from artistic rules,
become the artist you are meant to be.


It’s time to embrace a new way of thinking and feeling
find a visual expression that aligns with your unique creative voice,
but first, you must…


Release the fear of making mistakes and embrace the
freedom of pushing artistic boundaries to



"Through the soft and serious teachings of Lorna, I found freedom in creating; for the first time in my life, I can show my work with confidence,
I even feel like I did not make it, I found it!

– Ingela Edkvist

And although an individual process, several challenges commonly arise during this journey, including;

Lack of Clarity: Many people struggle with articulating their creative vision or have a vague idea of what they want to convey visually.

Comparisons and Imitation: It’s natural to be inspired by other artists and their styles. However, comparing oneself to others too much or imitating their work can impede the development of your authentic visual language.

Fear of Failure: Experimentation is crucial in finding a visual language, but the fear of failure,  judgment or criticism can hinder the exploration process.

Lorna Crane knows that the fear of making mistakes, self-doubt, and criticism will hold you back as an artist. She understands first-hand how important it is to cultivate self-confidence, embrace imperfections and find a connection with your materials to allow yourself to grow and evolve creatively.

Lorna also knows overcoming challenges requires self-reflection, creative exploration, and a willingness to step outside one’s comfort zone.

She is here to support you through this process so you can…

Gain the confidence to speak about your work,
discover your artistic identity, and chart a path
towards your artistic aspirations.


Meet Lorna Crane

Hi, I’m Lorna, and if I weren’t an artist, I would be a teacher.

I love sharing and am excited to share with you what I have learnt during my 40 years as a professional artist in my first online course.

It hasn’t always been easy; in fact, there are times in my life when I really doubted myself. After all these years of working and exhibiting, I now realise that it wouldn’t be healthy if I didn’t have those doubts and fears. I love sharing those moments with people because I know what that’s like.

This course is about finding your artistic voice, your own visual language. I’ll guide you through every step of the way by making your brushes, exploring your mark making and a series of projects to create objects of desire to record this time and this place.

If you’re a textile artist, you’ll probably do lots of stitching; if you’re a mixed media artist, you’ll probably use a lot of different mediums. It’ll be quite different from being in a class, but there’s a special quality about having this time of isolation of just being you and doing it at your own pace.

Perfectly imperfect is just the best compliment anybody could give me. I can’t wait to see what you create and hear your stories within our online community.

It’s going to be a time of deep discovery. Lorna.

Immediately after you enrol, you’ll receive an email with all your login details to access 8 hours of professionally filmed footage and a gamut of resources. The course begins as soon as you are ready! 

The only time-sensitive part of this course is the live engagement you’ll receive from Lorna within the student community group, which begins now and until the 25th of August, 2023.

Not at all. This course was created with you in mind – the creative who wants to watch in your own time, hit pause, re-watch, take a break, and then return for more! While you will receive live support during the first eight weeks of enrolment to cheer you on and help you through the art you make, know that there is no set schedule to complete this course – plus, you’ll have all the material for life!

Enrolment will close for the Perfectly Imperfect online course on the 30th of June 2023 if not sold out prior. Unfortunately, once the enrolments are closed, that’s it for at least another year. 

The good news is you can enrol now, keep the course in your Fibre Arts Take Two library, and get started any time. Remember, everything is recorded, and you have access for a lifetime.

YES, YOU DO! Not only will you receive Lorna’s personal feedback and support as you work through the class during the first 8 weeks after your enrolment within a private Facebook group.

We recognise that there are many community platforms and technology available. 

Fibre Arts Take Two chooses to host our students’ community groups on Facebook as an accessible platform that allows ease of communication for both students and tutors. 

All members can post images, videos, create albums of work and keep track of popular topics within the group. We can also stream our live Q&As directly into the group avoiding external links and distracting Zoom calls. 

We have multiple moderators within the group for encouragement and guidance, ensuring our communities are safe learning environments. 

This free platform helps keep the cost of administration and course fees down for everyone. 

It is important to note that we offer a closed Facebook group for enrolled students only to connect and share their journey for a lifetime.

To ensure an inclusive experience, we live stream our Q&A session through YouTube and send regular updates via email for those unable to create a Facebook account. 

This group is not compulsory but is highly recommended!

“FATT have put together this fabulous format that nurtures the interactions among us. I didn’t even do Facebook before!” – Chris Carlson.

Good question! You can post your questions about the course in our private Facebook group; either someone from the community, Fibre Arts Take Two or Lorna herself can help you.

If you have more technical questions or can not join the student group, please don’t hesitate to contact support@fibreartstaketwo.com.


Belief in oneself comes in many forms. For me it has been an ongoing journey of discovery on so many levels as I searched to understand my own visual language and more importantly by acknowledging the forks in my road along the way. 

As a storyteller my approach is to share my own personal experiences, drawing from my 40 plus years of exhibiting as a professional artist and tutor by sharing how the good, the bad and the sometimes ugly impacted on my work. Along the way I found my artistic voice and I am so eager to help you find yours. To trust your instincts is the beginning to connect with your unique qualities. 

My desire in this course is for you to let go of the pre-conceived ideas of the concept of ‘that perfect way of working’, by embracing the unknown as we push through some boundaries and expectations of ourselves as artists. There is a real sense of richness in the freedom of sharing these skills that come in many forms as we learn from each other.

 With some gentle guidance I will take you through many processes with respect, encouragement and support. We will be brave and break some rules along the way and add value to each others’ individual journeys in this supportive group.

Most importantly I want you to take your time and try not to compare yourself to others. We all work differently and there will be times when you connect so strongly to a process and I will work with you to continue to follow that flow. 

It starts with such excitement by making your own set of hand made brushes with that perfectly imperfect approach and a desire to play. Add a bit of a zen with a ‘what if and why not” attitude to grow and become the artist that you strive to be. 

Enrolment for this online experience with Lorna Crane is limited and will close soon.

Lorna Crane belongs to a group of artists who feel a reverential connection to the earth (the elements, wind, rain, heat, dust, growth and decay) and immerse themselves in it: their body, gestures, and choice of materials. Their work is a kind of choreography of the bush, a down-and-dirty embracing of it, utilising methods that often mimic how nature itself behaves, how it evolves, forms and dissolves. As such, the works rely less on what is before the eye and more on what the senses tell us; the resulting imagery is an experience rather than a depiction of something."

– Robert Hollingworth
