Craftworks Studio

Emma Watterson will be running our Children's Workshops.

"The studio has been a part of my life since I was 10 years old. My parents took my sister and I to the studio when it first opened in 2002 and I went on to join the original Saturday morning workshops. From there the studio quickly became my second home and when I turned 14, I started helping around the studio and painting pieces for the display shelves. It wasn't long before I became a regular assistant during the school holidays.

There is no doubt that the studio has played a huge roll in my life – it has given me the confidence from an early age to focus my future on art. I have completed the 2 year National Diploma course at the Isle of Man College and have been accepted at Leeds College of Art and Design where I start my course in September, 2011.

I know that my passion for art stemmed from the children's workshops because they were always exciting, educational and fun! The studio gave me the opportunity to be creative – there is nowhere else on the Island quite like it. As I have grown up with the studio, I am eager to teach the next generation of painters."
