In 2016, Studio Emma was created by Scottish artist Emma McDowall after she discovered her love of concrete, which she is coming to share with Reachout members!
After a year of experimenting with recipes and moulds within her mother’s humble garden shed, Emma now creates a collection of contemporary concrete products. From vessels to art objects and homeware, each piece is carefully cast by hand in her Edinburgh studio.
Each product is completely unique in its colour, texture and design, with many pieces still moulded using found or recycled materials. Emma focuses on the interplay between colour and material, celebrating the naturally occurring surface pattern and textural imperfections. This is a four week block of workshops.
