New Workshops for 2017

watercolour-workshop-emma blockemma-block-watercolour-classA new year is a time for exciting new starts, and in 2017 I will no longer be teaching at Quill and will be hosting my own brush lettering and watercolour class at West Elm. I absolutely love teaching and am excited about sharing these workshops with you. In January I’m teaching a Brush Lettering Workshop on 12th January – 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Brush Lettering is such a fun workshop, and so many of my students now use brush lettering regularly as part of their creative business. I’m also running a Watercolour Workshop on 29th January – 1 pm – 3:30pm. This is a really relaxed, creative class perfect for complete beginners and those wanting to brush up their skills. You’ll have a chance to explore colour mixing and colour theory before moving on to create both decorative designs and painting from life. You’re end up with a finished piece worthy of hanging on your wall. watercolour-brush-lettering-emma block
In February I’m teaching a brand new Watercolour Brush Lettering Workshop at West Elm, on the 9th February- 6:30 – 8:30 pm which I’m really excited about. This class is perfect for both beginners and for people who have already some brush lettering experience but would like add to their skills. I’m also teaching a Watercolour Workshop at West Elm on the 19th January – 1:00pm – 3:30 pm. brush lettering-workshop-emma blockwatercolour-workshop-emma blockbrush lettering-workshop-emma block

Hand in Hand Soap x Target

hand in hand soapHand in Hand Soap are one of my very first clients that I worked with when I graduated from university, and I’m really proud of the work we have done together. For a collaboration between Target and Hand in Hand soap we created a range of three winter inspired soaps. I used a mixture of watercolour and cut paper to give the packaging a richly layered look, and we took our inspiration from nature. Which is your favourite? I think the polar bear is mine, I love how it has turned out.hand-in-hand-mood-board
