The Value of Making

About this project

This new body of work was created to celebrate the skill, dexterity and the
creative problem solving of people who make things, recognising the value of
clever hands in an increasingly digital and cerebral age.
Concerned about the position of making in the hierarchy of skills we value as a society and how this is exacerbated by the decline of making in schools, Emily has made a series of portraits of contemporary makers to reflect how proud she is to be a member of this creative community.
