    Jennifer Dickson

    Woman of the Week

    Jennifer Dickson was born in Piet Retief, South Africa, on 17 September 1936. She arrived in London, England in 1954 to study painting and printmaking at Goldsmiths College of Art until 1959, after which she apprenticed at Stanley William Hayter's Atelier 17 printmaking studio in Paris between 1960 and 1965. Despite only living in England for a total of ten years between 1954 and 1969, Dickson was influential in developing and teaching printmaking, most notably establishing the graduate printmaking programme at Brighton College of Art (now University of Brighton) in the mid-1960s.
