I’ve known Emily and her work for a number of years. We cross paths now and again around the town, sharing certain causes. I admire her determination and commitment to the things she cares about – and I love her artwork: her technique and skills; her connection with the different materials she uses to express herself and the actual creative expressions which emerge.

If you have an interest in printmaking, Introduction To Wood Engraving may excite you. 6.00pm -8.30pm : 19 September to 28 November – and another course from 9 January to 20 March. Price : £130. Tutor: Emily Johns. Book with the college: Introduction To Wood Engraving.
