2019 - Teaching at Pinewood Studios

In November I had the opportunity to teach textile techniques to the students enrolled on the HNC in Media Makeup, Prosthetics and Costume. This is a new Higher Education Course offered by the Buckinghamshire College Group in conjunction with creative media skills at Pinewood studios.

During the two weeks I had 2 groups of students, approximately 30 students in total.

Emma Walker’s illustrations are amalgamations of domestic settings and artefacts within the home. The images often capture what is lost or nearly lost, recording objects that are deemed out of place, have been left behind, or may lose their former significance.  Many of the pictures have a story to tell. Hidden within the layers, you may find a ticket from a steam train journey, a child’s painting, a sticker from a museum, old book jackets, the signature of a five year old, children’s heights recorded on a door frame... Look closely! You might find them.   Emma discovered illustration alongside a long career working as a Textile Artist for film, television and theatre, a career that has shaped her eye for design, form and colour. She uses hand and digital techniques which cross over into both disciplines.
