Workshops and events for school children, university students and groups are available to book via email.
I have experience in running a range of workshops on the themes of illustration, picture books, comic creation, character design as well as freelancing and business. Each workshop is tailored to the age group and is presented in an exciting and unique way to give an insight in to illustration theory, technical processes, behind-the-scenes secrets, and light-hearted experiments in creativity.
Workshops I’ve led range from age 3+ ‘Create a story character’ and book reading afternoons in bookshops, a series of comic creation workshops at schools, to University lectures on creative freelancing as a career choice.
Working with Emmeline has been a real pleasure - she really relates to young people in a fun and informative way. Emmeline is willing to put in that bit extra to make projects happen and to overcome any challenges along the way. Her easy going, positive and gentle way of working brings results from people and her illustration work speaks for itself. Lovely to work with and look forward to the next time.

Emmeline visited our Year 2 Graphic Design and Advertising students as a guest speaker to discuss her career to date and the life as a freelancer. Her industry experience and knowledge gave the students a valuable insight into the realities of the real world and challenges they may face. Emmeline's message was positive, encouraging and authentic leaving the students better informed and eager to research their specialist area further.

I am also experienced as a guest on panel talks on both freelancing and the creative industries! I'm passionate about discussing the issues that affect freelancers and illustrators (e.g. taking the first steps into freelancing, finding inspiration, building a business, late payments, loneliness and overworking, finding work etc) as well as giving an insight into my technical processes of making illustration, picture books and comics.
I think it's really important to speak candidly about my experience as a freelance illustrator, and to give a really honest (but uplifting!) insight into the behind-the-scenes of life as an illustrator!
Bookings are available for live drawing at festivals, company events, parties and in-store promotion. For availability email here.
Live portraits are created in ink as a likeness to the sitter with a flair of Emmeline's illustrative style. Portraits take on average ten minutes each and have proved incredibly popular as a feature at recent events.
Live illustration as a projection or entertainment feature (see video below) is also available.
