I’m Emily Crookshank.
Artist and Printmaker… trudger, big sky lover, occasionally a bit awkward but a positive and excitable Human Being trying to be good at being human.
Through this website you will see examples of the work I create, work you can buy and other projects I’m really excited to be involved in.
I have recently received funding from Arts Council England, through the Developing Your Creative Practice fund. This has been the catalyst for significant and long-anticipated change for me. I am currently setting up my own etching studio at the new Bow Arts Studios at the Lakeside Centre. I’ll be continuing to develop my own work and will be offering workshops in original printmaking. Watch this space.
These are my arms. Doing things.
The Etching Process
There are many processes involved when it comes to etching. Everything’s done by hand and just so that I sound really impressive, it does require a fair amount of skill. It involves metal, acid, ink… there’s a whole technical and lengthy explanation for it and it can keep you entertained for hours so I suggest you come and try it for yourself!
