I’m Emily Crookshank.

Artist, printmaker and wanderer.

Through this website you will see some of the work I create, projects and exhibitions I’m excited to be involved in, as well as work available to purchase online.


I have recently received funding from Arts Council England, through the Developing Your Creative Practice fund. 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 for a solo exhibition next year and will be offering workshops in original printmaking.


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!
